Yarn Pumpkins Preschool Fall Art

Yarn Pumpkins Preschool Fall Art

  What fun the Frogs has this week creating Pumpkins for our Classroom Fall Harvest Party! As always I like to get everything set and ready so I can let the Frogs create without much help from me. However, that being said many were afraid to stick their hands in the glue so I had to show them, fun but messy so sorry not many photos due to my sticky hands! Once they got started they went to town. Lets get started presschool-october-043-800x600 Supplies Needed:     So before class I blew up the balloons, cut off one large string of Orange Yarn and wax paper on our drying shelf. To set up our art center I added a tub of soapy water so the Frogs to clean their hands right away! I covered half our Art table with wax paper and the other the washing station! Then filled a small bowl with the glue. Yarn Pumpkins Preschool Fall Art set up Each Frog dipped their yarn into the glue careful to soak all the yarn, although I have had them touch many different textures it was hard for some of them to stick their fingers in a bowl of glue. Once I got mine in they tried and I'm happy to say that all the Frogs got into the feeling of the thick, cold, sticky glue! One at a time they held their balloon and tuned it to wrap the yarn around the balloon. Then I set them on our drying wrack to dry. yarn-pumpkins-preschol-art-003-800x600 yarn-pumpkins-preschol-art-002-800x600 yarn-pumpkins-preschol-art-001-800x600 After letting them sit over the weekend to dry the frogs used scissors to cut the end of the balloon. The Frogs loved the way the balloon pulled from the yarn with a cool snapping sound! To finish the pumpkins I had the Frogs bend a brown pipe cleaner as a stem and wrap a green pipe cleaner around the base of the brown "Stem", using a crayon / pencil I had them wrap the green around to give it a curl. yarn-pumpkins-preschol-art-010-800x600 yarn-pumpkins-preschol-art-008-800x600 For added fun we added a LED tea light to light up our Fall Harvest Party! preschool-yarn-pumpkins

Acorn Wax Paper Window Art

This year to decorate our classroom windows we created these simple beautiful Acorns! All you need is Paint in fall colors. Brown Construction paper, cut in the shape of an Acorn with the bottom hallowed out. And a sheet of wax paper. Supplies Needed: september-2016-slp-111-600x800 To start I was going to have the kids drop real Acorns in paint and then roll them around the wax paper. Only this did not work because you need a lot of paint for the brown Acorn paper to stick.             Acorn Preschool Window Art So quick thinking I brought out the paint brushes and let them go to town.               Acorn Window Art The Frogs love plopping the paint down and watching the brush bristles fan out. When they finished their painting I set the brown paper Acorn over the top of the wax paper and had the frogs gently push down around the edge. Then we set them aside to dry. Simply cut around the edge and hang in the window. I love Fall!       Check out last year's Acorn Window art stained glass Acorn 5
