Wordless Wednesday: Thrown Together Projects are the Best!

Happy Wednesday! You might have noticed that I link up with Wordless Wednesday a lot. Well, That’s because Miss Decarbo’s linky is GENIUS! It’s fun, easy, and just the amount of blogging I can handle right now. πŸ˜‰

This week’s picture is actually from last week. I need to change out our back to school student work display (yes, I know it was the end of October…) and I wasn’t sure what to do with Halloween coming up in a few days, so I literally threw this project together, and it turned out perfectly! I drew the heads myself and copied and then found the mask and pumpkin cut outs in an old teacher book I had. My kiddos drew themselves, wrote clues on their pumpkin, and voila! We had a cute little project that was Halloween enough for Halloween, but not SO Halloween-y that I have to take them down just yet (okay, at least that’s what I’m telling myself). I’m going to be turning this into a TpT product once I have a little free time (haha), but I’ll offer other things instead of just pumpkins so it can be used all year!


So here’s my question today: What was the best “thrown together” project you ever created?

    I love the project! I definitely have a lot of fun with thrown together projects. They usually are inspired by what the kids need, or are interested in. One year with my preschoolers, we were learning about wind. We started out by blowing paint with straws and then used a hair dryer and a leaf blower. Totally inspired by them and it created cool art with the different powered wind!

    Super cute! We did candy corn banners that I found on Pinterest the morning of our behavior incentive day. What we had planned ended up being a no-go so I went searching. They turned out so cute and the kids ended up loving them more than I think they would have the initial thing!
