Once each year, I take a day of vacation and visit a grade school in my small hometown in Central Illinois. My husband and I are both from this small community of farmers and commuters, and have deep roots and relationships. My mother-in-law is a kindergarten teacher at one of the local grade schools and they love a good paper project.
Our new Royal Crowns Kit is perfect for this age group. All I provided were the die-cut crowns and some basic instruction. Be assured, no five year old needs help with creativity or inspiration. Every year I am amazed at how happy a collection of children become when you get out a basket of markers and a few sheets of inexpensive stickers. At the end of the day, each kid gets to wear their crown home proudly (myself included).
For the classroom, we created two flag banners from our Paper Flag Kits. Each student received one of the solid colored flags to decorate. Many students created a signature look, coordinating their flag with their crown. Once we assembled all of the pieces with some double-sided tape, the banners were hung criss-crossed over the kids’ desks.
By the end of the day, the joy always wears off onto me and I leave feeling like a little paper really can bring joy to your life! A huge “thanks” to Mrs. Kidd and her wonderful kindergarten class!
