first art show

Last week I hosted my school's first Art Night. 
Well I called it an "Arts Showcase and Activity Night".
We are in a temporary space, not our permanent school yet- and really don't have much space. 
I wanted a way to engage the families for a longer than a five minute pop in so I organized activities around the theme of recycling. 
I will post more about it this week--- but for now wanted to show you my first grade ladybug name tags.

so I rounded it out with these nametags after getting the idea for the moving lady bug wings with paper plates via pinterest.

 I photocopied the lady bug shape and sentences for the students to finish on thicker paper.

I loved that they had surprise writing inside.
(This one ironically is not the best model.)

The sentences they had to complete were:
An accomplishment in art class that I am proud of is:
Art helps me:

I also finally got a chance to try out the TP roll project I've had my eye on forever!
It worked awesome. 
Elmers glue and clothespins to hold them in place while the glue sets. :)

Stay tuned!
