I am always looking for those perfect spring days to take my kids outside
with drawing boards. We even took watercolor sets out last year.
Sometimes we do plaster sculpture outside. We pour plaster in milk carton

If I have leftover pariscraft, sometimes we go outside and do casts of
hands. Two kids work together. One day, they do one person's hand. The next
day they do the other. There are some really neat ideas of plaster hand
sculptures on IAD. This should get some problem solving going!
I teach middle school but most of these ideas could be adaptable to most
