This is a class I taught last spring (2013) for grades1st-4th. In order to keep my classes on the small side (important for this one), I taught it to two different groups of kids, two different hours. It's messy; it's fun. It's kids getting a chance to make their own craft supplies and more!
Unfortunately, I can't find any photos of this class. Maybe I found one. I should post it for evidence that I really did teach this one. Here. Oh. Maybe I found two (of our corn syrup paintings).
Anyway, as cute as those kids are, the photos aren't what's important. I can still give you the meat and bones. You can grab the syllabus by clicking on the image below.
Our favorite things to make were the coffee dough habitats, sidewalk chalk, dinosaur digs, and plastic sun catchers (we still have ours in a window!). The Kool-Aid Play-doh and the shrinky dinks were also a hit. If I were to teach this class again, I would include all of the above.
And, just because I like you, I'm going to recommend finding replacements for the bouncy balls and the homemade stickers (Can anyone say wet-dog-smell and dry-heaving? Yuck!)
All the ideas for this class are linked up on my Crazy Kid Concoctions Pinterest Board. You will find some additional ideas there, too.
