Just as I was getting ready to stop working Wednesday afternoon, I got some good news from my Education.com editor. My latest batch of activities are up.
“3-D Pumpkin Collage.” I had a nice little surprise when I pinned this one. Someone else had already pinned it. Yay!
“Autumn Beaded Bracelet.” I actually wear this one several times a week. Two different people have asked me to make this bracelet for them.
“Autumn Leaf Bowl.” After taking the photos for publication, I spray painted these bronze.
“Autumn Tree Paintings.” I really liked the way this painting turned out.
“Felt Jack-O-Lantern.” Felt scraps can come in handy. This one had also been pinned.
“Spooky Self Portrait.” Another one that was a lot of fun.
“Autumn Cinquain.” I love writing poetry activities. If only I was a poet!
“Before and After Halloween Acrostic.” Coming up with an interesting photo for a poem is tricky. I employed the skeletal Jimmy Gibbs, Jr. for this one.
“Paper Pumpkin Numbers.” Preschool math activities generally sell well because they aren’t easy to develop. 1 math activity, 16 others in this batch.
“Autumn More or Less.” Learning to weigh.
“Candy Corn Balance.” A tricky one to photograph.
“Candy Corn Science.” When you buy something like candy corn for a set of activities, try to use it more than once. This one was also pinned.
“Glowing Eyes.” This one was a lesson in “you need to try it before you write it up.” Didn’t work quite how I thought it would. Fortunately, I was the one to find that out.
“Pumpkin Measurements.” A lesson in the different ways you can measure the same thing.
“Scary Science with Spiders.” How to make your own sticky spider web.
“Skeleton Hand Print.” Activity #4 that had already been pinned.
This is the first time that I’ve had any activities pinned before I could get to it. And it wasn’t one but four. So often we send our work out and are never sure that it connect with people. This was a nice change.
For those of you in the US, I hope you are finding some time to spend enjoying the holiday weekend. Take some time to recharge so that you can get going on your writing Monday morning.
