House Magnet Fundraiser

My stu­dents in grades K-7 recently raised over $2,000 using their artis­tic skills to ben­e­fit our local food bank!  We adapted this “Houses for Haiti” project (orig­i­nally inspired by “Haiti Houses”) to cre­ate charm­ing mag­nets which we sold for $5 each at our church one Sun­day, and we donated all the pro­ceeds to Sec­ond Har­vest Food […]

Houses for Haiti Lesson Plan

Two amaz­ing teach­ers in Florida came up with a cre­ative idea to raise money for Haiti after the 2010 earth­quake.  After dis­cov­er­ing “Haiti Houses” on the inter­net, I was inspired to try it for myself and make a few changes.  Below is my ver­sion of this project.

She used these projects for a Kids Kreations fundraiser and wanted to […]

More Quilts!

Just for fun, I thought I would post a few more pic­tures of the quilts we made using Kid­sKreations for the print­ing of the kids’ art­work. These quilts were amaz­ing, and unfor­tu­nately these shots don’t really do them jus­tice. I wish I had taken bet­ter pic­tures of them, but at the time I didn’t know […]

Creative Art Quilts

Home­made quilts are another great fund rais­ing idea that you can do with Kid­sKreations! What makes these quilts so charm­ing and unique is that they are made using kids’ art­work! I did this with each of my K-6 Art classes and we auc­tioned them off at our Spring Open House & Art Show. Our quilts […]
