We recently discovered Jill Dubien’s handiwork over at Meet the Dubiens and are a bit starstruck so pardon two features in a row – we didn’t think you’d mind seeing as how her crafts are simple yet spectacular and can be adapted for any classroom! Here’s another great project that is sure to be a hit – thumbprint Christmas lights!
Supplies You’ll Need
Here are a few ways to use this fun craft…
|Place thumbprint lights on the front of a folded piece of card stock to create Christmas greeting cards.|
|Cut long strips of bulletin board paper, place them on the floor, and have students create homemade Christmas light bulletin board borders.|
|Use them to create counting cards. Cut small 4″ x 4″ pieces of card stock adding a different number of thumbprint lights to each – including numbers one through ten. Once the paint has dried, laminate the cards and provide students with a dry erase crayon. Invite them to count the number of lights on the card and script the correct number. Counting and writing practice!|
We’re sure there are more creative ways to use this project – all you need is a little imagination! Be sure to visit Meet the Dubiens for the full post and directions!
