Drawing is one of the most important activities you and your students can do. Drawing not only provides the basis for other creative activities – like painting, sculpture and printmaking – but it also provides a direct link with reading, writing and especially mathematics. Drawing is the single most accessible form of art available. All you need (to begin with), is a pencil and a sheet of paper.
Let’s face it, sometimes you just need a break. And when you do, it’s nice to have some ideas up your sleeve that don’t involve a lot of prep work. Here are fun crafts to keep kids busy when they are home from school.
