The watercolor stained coffee filters make a beautiful background for these Lenten themed silhouettes. There are three suggestions for making these silhouettes, taking into consideration the age of the students. You can add sayings to the frames, or let them plain. There are six different silhouettes included in the templates.
Although this Lenten project can be found in the 6th Grade Gallery in the sidebar, with some changes younger students may be able to do it.

The ashes are a symbol of our sinfulness. We are reminded that our bodies are but ash, and to ash it shall return. Our soul is who we are, the part of us that will live after our death. By dying on the cross, Jesus made reparation for our sins, so that our souls can get to Heaven. Lent makes us aware that we can always begin again. Lent is a season for us to think about how we should be living our lives. A time for us to ponder the sacrifice Jesus made for us by dying on the cross, so that when we die, we can be with Him in Heaven. Find this Lenten project in the 4th Grade Gallery in the sidebar.
The medicine man, or healer of a tribe, carried a medicine bag that contained many different items including herbs for healing. The bag itself was thought to have special supernatural powers. In many tribes, besides the medicine man, every male Indian had a personal medicine bag that carried items that were thought to give them special powers. The items had special significance and were added over the man’s lifetime. You’ll find the instructions for making this American Indian Medicine Bag under the 3rd Grade Category in the sidebar.

Imagine walking in a distant, winter dried forest. Suddenly a flash of color catches your eye and as you turn to see what it is, you see a cardinal light on a bare bush. The beauty of the red bird, in contrast to the stark surroundings, burns the image into your memory.
You’ll find the directions for this project, “Red Bird,” under the 5th Grade category in the sidebar. For a closer look, click on the image above.
This cereal box Nativity is a great classroom project that doesn’t take an extraordinary amount of preparation. This project is made by cutting a cereal box and painting the inside of it. The Nativity figures are free images that can be printed from the FREE-N-FUN Christmas site. I’ve included instructions on how to resize the images to fit the cereal box. You’ll find the instructions to make this “Cereal Box Creche” under the 4th Grade category in the sidebar. Click on the photo for a larger image.
After the students do this project, it can be used as a Christmas card or as a wall hanging. So many art classes are limited to an hour or less, so patterns and directions are welcomed by the busy classroom teacher. Although this is a very simple to make project, the results will make the kids proud of their efforts. You’ll find the patterns and instructions for this project, “Trim the Tree,” under the 2nd Grade Category in the sidebar. For a larger image, click on the photo.
