Time for a Swim!

Hi friends,
I'm back, a second day in a row! I'm busier than ever, yet I'm finding more time to blog! Go figure! Today was a cold one in Montreal, however the kiddies really wanted to go swimming! So we did!

As usual, I gave the kiddies a template on card stock (Guess what! I'm giving it to you too!) and they traced the swimwear onto their preferred color of construction paper. I don't know if I've ever mentioned (I'm sure you all do this anyway) but I always make a model and place it on the board. I also make several copies of the template, so as to keep the peace! I usually make about 6 for a class of 20. It's a good number. They never finish the writing portion at the same time, 
so there is always at least one template available. 

I think these turned out darling! The kiddies did such a great job! My favorite little touch is the shoelace drawstring on the swimming trunks. I simply purchased shoelaces at the dollar store, made a bow, and used my hot glue gun to stick them on! Cute right?!?!

Grab yourself the SWIMMING TRUNKS
Don't forget the SWIMSUIT 

Until next time...

  1. I like having some kind of art project after the writing is done. I think that this induces reluctant writiers to finish.

    1. I agree completely, it make sthe writing all the more meaningful to them and motivates them to "WANT" to write! Publsihing is such an important aspect of writing. :)

  2. I love your craftivities!! This is another cute one! Thanks for sharing!! :)
