Sculpting and Squishing With Dough for Creative Learning Fun
Idea #1

Sculpting and Squishing With Dough for Creative Learning Fun

Kids love to squish and play, so it’s fun to incorporate dough into your lesson plans — sculpt your way through science facts or squish into some really cool math lessons. Plus, dough is a great addition to art and other classroom centers, and it’s fun for rainy-day recesses and after-school programs. Open up a whole new world of learning, creativity, and play for kids — the only limit is their imaginations.

Idea #2

Paper-Mâché Crafts... A Little Messy and a Whole Lot of Fun!

Paper-mâché is an extremely versatile medium and can be used for many items from art and school projects to party decorations and classroom décor. Use inflated balloons as your base to create cool piñatas or a model of the planet. Crumpled paper and tape are an easy base for sculptures and masks. Add wire around crumpled paper for larger sculptures or as the base for homecoming float pieces. Paper-mâché is a little messy and a whole lot of fun, so kids will love it no matter what you choose to make!

You”ll get a chance to get to know your class better, plus it also gives your students a chance to get to know each other and embrace their differences. The best part is your students will be writing in a fun way — they won’t even realize they’re learning!
