Re:ornaments-clear lids and tin foil


Date: Wed Dec 10 2003 - 20:11:52 PST

I wanted to follow up to all of you helpful teachers out there.
I tried a lesson that was a HIT with k-6th grade!
Take a Dannon yougurt lid.
The design challenge is to draw a line through the printed expiration date
with a sharpie. Use that line to create a Christmas design. We turned it
into a horizon line for the manger and shepherds with a star. Wise men on
camels worked too. It could be a Christmas tree or Candy cane or a cross in
stained glass.
Aafter drawing the design in sharpie, color with water based markers (all I
had, I didn't try any others)
Then cut out a circle from the shiny side of foil. Put glue stick glue on
the edges, not Elmer's.
It becomes a beautiful ornament when you add a paper clip to hang.
I was amazed at how many loved this lesson.
It's good in a pinch in Dec. too.
Thanks for all the ideas about what to do with 110 lids. I guess our family
eats a lot of yogurt!
