stringing up the lights!

I needed a QUICK fill-in-the-gap lesson for my fourth graders, but I'd imagine this could be done from grades 2-5 and they'd all love it just the same! We used gray 9x12 paper and black sharpie to make the tangled lights and bulbs. We then used chalk and smeared it from the inside out to create the "glow". I love these!

  4. Another awesome idea! Thanks for sharing. These short lessons will be great as the kids start to get antsy for break! Plus they don't have to be "Christmas Light" for the "non-participators".

  6. Did these with 3-5 all week last week. Kids loved it and learned about bright colors next to dull colors.

  7. I pinned this to my Pinterest board last night. This morning I found out a dozen (classroom) teachers repinned it. You have a very popular project! Expect it to be all around the country next Christmas.
