The following art projects are in the Grade Galleries in the sidebar. Although, I’ve listed projects under certain grades, you know your class and which projects you want to use. So, check out all the galleries, then pick out your favorite art ideas.
There is a link to a simple frog drawing lesson that makes this, “frogs on lily pads,” a quick and fun art project for the little artists.
