This glitter Play-Doh recipe is simple to make. They will just need hair condition, corn starch, and blue glitter. This would be a fun science experiment for students since students will be putting the ingredients together and predicting what may happen.

This tactile learning activity for young students is a fun and festive way to practice their names, cutting, and gluing. Since the students are practicing their motor skills and spelling their names, this is perfect for pre-k and kindergarten.

All things Frozen is a huge hit right now… This Olaf activity is a great way to get students crafty in the winter months. Each student gets a different colored piece of construction paper for the background. Then, they will create Olaf given different cut-out pieces of black and white construction paper.

This ornament gift is a great idea for students to make in the classroom and send home to parents. Get a cheap set of red and green ornaments and let the students put a white hand-print around the ornament. They can decorate their handprint to become five little snowmen.

These ornaments that I made for my students’ parents were a hit! First, I took one of their school pictures and laminated it to a piece of cardstock. Then, I hot glued crayons around the edge. They turned out so cute!
