FunLab often receives requests for ideas for classroom activities from elementary school teachers. We have loads of suggestions but usually when I say the words “hot glue” and “paint” their eyes get big and the say no, no, no. This year I decided to take a cute idea and make it work for teachers – meaning no hot glue and no painting:). The origin of the project is a wonderful blog, La classe di maestra Valentina, in which she turns a simple wooden spoon into an adorable Santa Claus place maker. The challenge was to make a version which teachers could use with their students. Our Wooden Spoon Santa decorations, have lived up to the challenge! Red yarn instead of paint and craft glue will make all our teachers happy!
Mission accomplished! Will a little bit of yarn and craft glue this project can be used for a classroom full of crafters.
