Mondrian Hearts

This art activity was inspired by Mrs. T's First Grade Class
  Our version was done a bit differently.  We drew lines on heart templates with pencils and rulers and then painted in our shapes.  When the paint was dry we cut out our hearts and glued them onto black construction paper.  We then glued down black strips of paper to cover our pencil lines and then cut our the hearts again leaving a black border.

This bulletin board display might be my favorite of all time.  Here is what my board looked like before the art work was put up:

Winter Birds

Here is an adorable winter collage activity my Grade Ones did with the help of our Big Buddy class.  You can find all the instructions, including printable templates, at

I HEART CRAFTY THINGS provides two versions for templates to create the birds.  One has the birds in one piece (other than the beak) and the other has them in multiple pieces.  We used the multiple pieces version here.  Putting all the bird pieces together would have been way too difficult for my little ones with the help of their Big Buddies.  If you try this with a younger class I would highly recommend using the simpler template.
