Did you know that if you mix shaving cream with Elmer's glue and a bit of paint you can make a work of art that dries puffy?  Oh the possibilities... The picture here doesn't do this project justice. The pumpkin is puffed up to over an inch high!  Here's a template to make either a horizontal or vertical pumpkin.  Simply follow the directions to create something amazing!  Your kiddos will love doing this craftivity.

1-2-3 Come Do Some Pumpkin Craftivities With Me

Quite a few of my most popular downloads are those that involve a hands-on craft.  With all of the standards we have to teach, I realize that many teachers don't feel that they have any time left in their day for the "fun" things they used to do. 

With that in mind, I try to incorporate some standards in the crafts that I design, thus the name "craftivities".  pumpkin crafts, pumpkin activities, pumpkin writing prompts, common core pumpkins, life cycle of a pumpkin, pumpkin facts, pumpkin masks, pumpkin puppets, peekin in a pumpkin, kool aid pumpkinsI decided to featurA Baker's Dozen   of my all-time favorite pumpkin craftivities in this article, since the number 13 can certainly be associated with Halloween.  Although I've used the term a baker's dozen for years, I didn't know why it came about.  If you're curious too, click on the link. 

Since Apple Sense was such a huge hit, I decided to make a Pumpkin Sense one.  This is a quick, easy and fun way to review the 5 senses, as well as work on the importance of adjectives in descriptive writing. 

Having a carved class pumpkin isn't necessary, but really helps.  Adding a hand print leaf and photo adds that finishing touch.

Via a note home to parents, which is included in the packet,  you'll have the personal information needed to help your kiddo's make a personal pumpkin. 

There are also family word cards that you can use in a pocket chart or for flashcards, plus several worksheets and a Tally Time activity with math extensions.

Students find and cut out shapes to make a pumpkin face, as well as letters that spell their name.  These will be used for the pumpkin's smile.  They can also search for all of the letter Pps on their pumpkin and circle them.

 For writing practice, younger students trace and write the Pp is for pumpkin worksheet and glue it to the back of their pumpkin.  Brainstorm with older students of why pumpkins might be in the news.  They choose a topic and then write about it on the pumpkin template, trim and then glue to the back of their newsprint pumpkin

The "guts" of the pumpkin are on the other side. 

I put a dollop of Elmer's glue with a bit of yellow paint in the middle and let my students swirl it around with a Q-tip, then glue bits of yarn and real pumpkin seeds on, for an awesome result.

You can review 2D shapes and have students draw a Jack-O-Lantern face on the back, or you can teach some pumpkin facts with the pumpkins ARE, HAVE, CAN writing prompt; (I've included a completed sample.) or you can explain the life cycle of a pumpkin, and have students color, trim and glue that circle to the back of their pumpkin bowl. 

Curling ribbon and a child's hand print leaf add the finishing touches.  These look terrific suspended from the ceiling too.

One involves measurement activities, another investigates the inside and outside of a pumpkin and uses adjectives to record findings; while the last one involves writing about things that scare you. 

This is a 3 dimensional pumpkin as students glue 3-4 paper circles together.

When I Googled the song, I found a sweet Popsicle stick puppet over at Teacher Mama.  Click on the link for a pattern and my version. Pumpkin Puppet.

This idea has been around for decades, but I just learned of it a few years ago when I met a crafty gal at Hobby Lobby.  I actually made these with my Y5's.  Their mommies were really impressed, as they turned out so cute.  They cost about $1 each to make.

This photo doesn't do justice to how absolutely awesome these turned out, as our pumpkins puffed up to over an inch high when they dried.

We also revisit this technique in January when we make snowmen.  Click on the link for the Puffy Pumpkin.  To see a photo of our snowmen click here. For some reason, you can see the puffiness much better in the snowman pictures.

1-2-3 Come Make Some Shaving Cream Stuff With Me!

If you haven't heard of using shaving cream in the classroom yet, you and your students are missing out on a lot of fun.  Yes, it's a little bit messy, but oh the joy of hands-on learning.

The whole key to not making a mess is to give them just enough to make a writing board.

As you call out each letter, number,  shape or whatever, students draw that on their snow "board."  When you've checked everyone's work by simply a glance, have them "erase" their board by smoothing it over, so you can call out something else for them to write/draw. 

After you review, give your students one last dollop for them to write their name or draw whatever they like.

An extra bonus is that the shaving cream takes off sticky glue residue, as well as crayon, permanent marker and ink marks.  Depending on the fragrance you choose, your room should smell simply wonderful. 

The cream also makes your kiddo's hands feel smooth and soft.  Take a teachable moment to talk about friction, as students rub the tabletop or their desk. The shaving cream will disappear, and their hands will feel warm.  We take a bathroom break to wash our hands, and then everyone pitched in with wet paper towel, to wipe and dry our work space.  Our tables were so clean and shiny!

Shaving cream is also an excellent "frosting" or "snow" for winter "craftivities".  The results pack a huge "Wow!" affect and were some of my students' favorite artwork.  Shaving cream creations make an outstanding decoration for your hallway, but hang them above any one's reach, so little fingers aren't tempted to poke the fluffy "snow." To make the "snow frosting," mix Elmer's glue with equal parts non-menthol shaving cream; mix quickly to whip up a frothy-goopy consistency. 

I plopped 1 or 2 spoonful's on each child's project and then they smoothed their "frosting"  with a Popsicle stick.  Depending on how thick the artwork is, shaving cream craftivities need at least 24-48 hours to dry.  Here are 2 of my all-time favorite shaving cream creations.

If you have an Ellison Die Cutter at your disposal, these cookies are adorable cut into your students' initials. Add a few real candy sprinkles and these honestly look good enough to eat; they look so real!

These make a darling bulletin board too.  Cover with aluminum foil to make a giant "cookie sheet". Caption: "We're cooking up a batch of fun, learning letters in _____________'s class."

Shaving cream would also look cute on a frosted gingerbread man, and would be fun for your kiddo's to decorate like mine did with their snowmen below. Scatter them on your aluminum foil background above. Caption: "Some Sweet Fun With Our Gingerbread On The Run!"

We got zillions of compliments and everyone wanted to know the secret of the awesome looking "snow!"  I've also made them into a bulletin board accompanied by stern "Don't touch!" warnings. 

Not sure why I used a yellow background here, when blue snowflake wrapping paper would have been awesome.

I used a template to pre-draw the ones for my Y5's.  You really need to make sure that there is a definite "neck" as the "snow" spreads and puffs up to the point where a snowman could look just like a big blog.  Make sure students have written their name in the corner.

You don't want to use colored tag board, because when it gets wet it bleeds. If I remember correctly I used 4 cans of shaving cream for my Y5's.  I had 2 classes, so this was about 35-40 students.  It's always a good idea to have 1 or 2 extra cans just in case. 

You can always use it for tabletop fun.  I also had a gallon-sized container of Elmer's, so I didn't go through a bunch of smaller glue bottles.  Use equal parts of shaving cream and glue.

I collected a large tub of  pieces and parts to decorate the snowmen via a note home making a request,  searching my house, taking apart jewelry and going junking.

Put several scoops of “stuff” in paper bowls and set 2 on each table. Give students 5-10 minutes to pick out 2 eyes, 1 nose, something for a mouth and 3-5 items for their snowman's buttons.

It’s very important to have children design their snowman BEFORE you give them a dollop of shaving cream, because they need to work rather quickly spreading their “snow” with a Popsicle stick. 

It’s helpful if they arrange their parts on the side, so that they don’t forget what they chose for each feature.  Children get so excited when they get the “snow-goop” that they sometimes forgot and this really helped.  Also remind them to stay INSIDE the lines as one of my kiddo's was having so much fun "frosting" that he frosted the entire piece of tag board instead of just the snowmfrosted cookie Christmas ornament, Christmas crafts with kids, shaving cream activities, shaving cream crafts, art with shaving cream, ideas for shaving cream, shaving cream in the classroom, cookie ornaments, christmas crafts, christmas activities, snowman crafts, snowman activities, snowman art, winter bulletin boards, december bulletin boards, january bullein boards, snowman bulletin boardsan

I also did the shaving cream board, discussed above, a day or two before.  This really helped to avoid children's curiosity of how shaving cream felt, so they got down to the business of creating a snowman, instead of getting off task and simply playing with the shaving cream

Mix up a huge bowl of “fluff” and use a wooden spoon to give each student enough dollops so they can “frost” their snowman.  I also demonstrate how this is done.  When they are satisfied with the results, they gently plop their decorative pieces in the appropriate places.

After they have completed decorating, set aside in a designated "keep out!" drying area. 

Again, you will need at least 24-48 hours of dry time.  Because of that, I always did shaving cream art on a Friday.

When you return to school they should have dried and really “puffed” up!  They look simply amazing!   Click on the link to view/download the Shaving Cream Snowman “craftivity.” 

I hope you have a delightful time with these ideas.  If you take pictures, I'd LOVE to hear from you and see your "mess-terpieces!" diane@teachwithme.com

If you run into a Grinch that says: "You can't do that!" or "Shaving cream's not allowed in our school." I recommend reading Lisa Murphey's Ooey Gooey article. It's a humorous read, chock full of lots of factual information you can arm yourself with.

I tinted the shaving cream with powdered tempera.  I've also used liquid paint, and added more glue and shaving cream, so it didn't get soupy.  You could also drip some drops of food coloring in, but I don't think the colors come out as vibrant.  A heart for Valentine's Day would be fun as would a shamrock for St. Patty's Day.  Oh the ideas are endless!
