During the first week of school, you want to be teaching routines and expectations for your art class. I always like to ease into the school year with some simple, yet creative projects to get to know my students. I am going to share with you three fun Back-to-School ideas that you can try in your art classroom.
1. Creative Backpack
My students used the template created by Hey Art Mama to make these creative backpacks. (I do not receive compensation for linking to this shop.) I love how they all turned out so unique even though they started with the same shape.
2. About Me Cell Phones
We used the handouts from The Imagination Box by for this project. (I do not receive compensation for linking to this shop.) The kids decorated a cell phone with pictures about themselves.
3. My Favorite Things
This is great for the little kids. Use this activity to get to know your students and their favorite things. At the bottom is a space for the kids to write down the art room rules. This is great for the first day of art class for younger kids. Download the FREE handout at my shop!
