Here's a quick idea for a calendar you can make with scraps of paper. It's a nice way to use up scraps and practice ripping paper. I made this project with a variety of kiddos from pre-K to 4th grade and they all enjoyed it. I think they especially enjoyed adding the splatter-paint snow at the end!
|Here's a close-up of a couple of the calendars. As you can see, some of|
the older students added a few details to their scenes.
These were done as part of my "Gifts from the heART" class.
