If there’s one thing I love to see in a preschool or kindergarten classroom, it’s artwork made by students! This is the time when children are working on their fine motor skills and learning how to cut with scissors and glue things together. Books are being read daily and new themes are being introduced through out the year. Craft projects are great to tie into the curriculum, but let’s be honest not always feasible because of the amount of time that goes into prepping one. Well, Crafty Bee Creations is here to help with this free “The Crayon Box That Talked” craft pattern set.
Be sure to do this craft project after you’ve read the book, “The Crayon Box that Talked,” by Shane DeRolf.
To give the crayons some personality I moved around the arms and legs and added some different facial features to make them unique. Letting students do this to their crayon gives their crayon personality and will allow students to find their crayon easier if you put them on display in the room or on a bulletin board.
The craft pattern set includes patterns you can print directly onto colored paper (students just cut and glue) as well as ones you print on to cardstock to make tracers (students trace, cut, and glue). The patterns are very kid-friendly, keeping in mind that students need room around each pattern to turn the paper while still being able to cut.
This pattern set is truly adorable! You really need to just download it and find out for yourself! It will not only save you time but your kiddos will love creating them. Fill out the form below to join our email list and we will send the file directly to you right now.
