They worked well, and they were free. I had some co-workers save gallon milk jugs and I used broken crayons to weigh them down:
|If there's one thing art teachers have plenty of it's old, broken crayons!|
One thing I will do for next year, I'll add an arrow in my classroom door as I came back to a room full of people after checking on my Make Art stations. I guess if you tell kids, "you'll get to make some art" they assume it will be in the art room. Go figure!
I will be driving around with these signs in the back of my minivan when the weather turns warmer to get the crayons to melt into a mass for next year.
The Make Art stations were heavily attended, with the painting station at fourth grade being the most popular:
|Third grade Make Art symmetry design station.|
|Sixth grade adinkra stamp printing Make Art station.|
Run by a second grader because sixth graders are too cool for school events.
|Fourth grade Make Art landscape painting station.|
