11 Teacher-Approved Crafts for School free eBook
Parents love it and kids love to hate it. School can be a divisive topic, but at the end of the day, everyone has to go. Back-to-school season can cause anxiety for some, so help create a seamless transition with these fun school crafts for kids.
Teachers can get in on the act, too. Projects like the Back-to-School Pencil Earrings (p. 25) are perfect for excited instructors who want to share his or her love of learning. You can also use the projects in 11 Teacher-Approved Crafts for School to decorate a classroom.
Round up some inexpensive materials and start thinking creatively with your child. The more you foster a positive attitude about school through creative play, the more likely a child will enjoy his or her academic experience.
The start of the school year can be tough for parents. School supplies are often expensive and don't always last long. Instead of heading to a big-box supplier and spending a fortune, have your kids create their own personalized school supplies. For example, you can help your children create their own Colorful Fabric Book Cover (p. 7) using old bandanas or scrap fabric. You can keep it simple or add a colorful pocket for pencils - it's completely up to you.
Kids can also create magnets to display their work on the fridge, and moms and dads can help kids make a picture frame covered in pencils. On the first day of school, be sure to grab your little student and take a picture - you'll want to remember this day for years to come. You can display the image in the DIY frame. Crafts for school have never been this adorable!
