Memorial day related crafts and actvtivies

For the after school program this week the theme is Memorial day.

For the after and before school program we use a lot of coloring sheets. I am not a huge fan of coloring sheets but I try to find ways to creatively use them. So on Monday we made Memorial day wreaths using black construction paper, the coloring sheets we had and some tissue paper.

Tuesday morning I was sitting and drawing with one of the kids who was using a drawing book on "How to Draw Famous Cartoon Characters"  I had a coloring sheet that one student had started a mustache on this little boy who is suppose to be sitting and watching a parade. A great kid inspired tangent ensued we laughed hard at this.

Tuesday after noon we read "The Wall" by Eve Bunting  we talked about the wall be a carved and recessed wall and that people make rubbings of the names on it. Then we made texture rubbings of our own and us wooden puzzle pieces for letters and found some textures on our supply boxes and outdoors and made rubbings with crayons.

Tomorrow  we will make patriotic jewelery and hair falls with yarn and pony beads in colors Red, White and Blue.
