Pine Cone Trees!!

 The past two weeks every grade level has been creating some fabulous winter artwork. One of my students, who is very interested in photography brought this fabulous horse to school and asked we could take a picture of Shrimp riding the horse. She spent a few of her recess periods creating the perfect backdrop with butcher paper and some of the glittered pine cone trees! It turned out fabulous as ever!! I love when my students come to school inspired!!
She set up the perfect backdrop for the perfect photo! 

You can see directions here:

Third grade has had a blast using broken jewelery to create these snowy winder trees full of sparkle and bling! We painted them with green tempera, doused them in modpodge and covered them in glitter! 

After the glitter dried, I poured plaster paris on paper and stuck the trees in the plaster. When you mix up the plaster it is very liquidy, you must wait about 15-20 minutes for it to thicken so the tree will stand on its own in the plaster.

 Shrimp supervised from his easel and chirped orders at the kids!
