Hopefully the projects here will inspire other ideas to make the classes unique.Each art lesson includes pictures of the project; supplies needed list and directions for making the project.
A number of the art activities for the fourth through sixth grade also include PowerPoint presentations showing the works of a particular artist whose work is being emulated.You'll be doing your teacher friends a favor if you direct them to the Kids & Glitter site. It'll save them tons of time.
When writing on HubPages, the rules are that there can only be two links to any particular site or blog, so in order to view the different projects that I'm sharing, please click here, Kids & Glitter, and then to the grade Gallery specified in each of the following projects.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but rules are to be followed. Thanks for understanding.

All the art projects have been used in a classroom setting. Each class, grades one through six, has over twenty class projects specified for that grade. Many of the activities could be interchanged; the teacher could choose to use activities listed under another class designation.

Tell Your Teacher Friends
the angels that watch over the kids
I hope you have enjoyed this little overview of the projects available on Kids and Glitter. When I first put them on the blog I only intended it for my own use. But, after I found out how many different projects I had, I thought possibly classroom teachers or homeschool teachers might find them useful also. So if you know of any teacher or homeschooler that you think would find the Kids and Glitter website advantageous, I invite you to send them the address.Find the directions for "Heavenly Daze," under the 2nd Grade Projects Gallery on Kids & Glitter.
