1 Claymation Picture Frame empty CD cases in good condition with no cracks (one per child) a variety of colours of plasticene ( precut into small pieces to make it more manageable for children to manipulate) Take the inside of the CD cover out (the part that holds the CD in place). Precut plasticene into small, manageable pieces for children to manipulate. Take apart the CD cover and give children the bottom part of the CD case to put their claymation picture. Ensure that the picture is flat enough so the case will be able to close. Make sure the "hinges" are at the top so that when the case is put back together, it will be able to hang on the wall Use one colour as the background for the picture. Have children warm up the plasticene in their hands to make it easier to spread around. Encourage children to use their thumbs to spread plasticene around the CD cover. Try to make sure it is spread as evenly as possible so that every part of the case is covered. Next use small pieces on top of background to make a picture. It can be a scene or something as simple as a flower. When the picture is finished, carefully put the cover on top and you have a beautifully framed claymation picture! Makes a great Mother's Day gift! 1 Thank you to Building Blocks Preschool Langley, BC

11 Feely Flower (Tulip) White paper (for photocopy) Construction paper (for backing) Variety of felt Pre-cut the felt centers for the tulip. Using the template provided, photocopy the tulip onto white paper. (If using markers to colour the tulip, photocopy paper is probably fine. If using paint to colour, use construction paper.) Colour or paint the tulip. Glue onto construction paper (as backing). Cut out the tulip. Glue the felt center onto the middle tulip petal. Bulletin Board Suggestion: Add stems and grass. Children can choose where to place their tulip on the bulletin board. NOTE: A quick way to make grass is to put green photocopy paper into a shredding machine (provided it cuts in long strips). Children can make the grass shorter by tearing or cutting each strip in half. 11

13 Stain Glass Easter Cross Construction paper for background (darker colours accentuate the glass better) Squares of colourful and bright tissue paper Glue Cut a slender cross-shaped hole out of 9 x 12 construction paper. (This is can be done by folding the construction paper in half length-wise, and cutting out a half cross so that when you unfold the construction paper, a complete cross is visible. This technique eliminates the need to use an exacto knife.) Pre-cut squares of tissue paper (about 2 x 2 ). Children cover the hole on the reverse side with the paper. Overlapping tissue is fine. 13

14 Cherry Tree Popcorn Ziploc bags Pink paint Green construction paper Brown paint Glue Pop popcorn and place in a Ziploc bag with pink paint. Shake up and leave out on a tray to dry. On green construction paper, paint a brown tree with branches. Glue cherry blossoms on branches. 14

15 Pinwheel Flower Background construction paper Coloured construction paper for petals Green construction paper for leaf & stem Circle sticker or circle punch for center Using the template provided, photocopy petals on coloured paper and the leaf and stem on green paper. Children cut out the pieces. To glue, it is easiest if the child sets the stem in place first, as close to the bottom as possible. The two petals closest to the stem can be positioned next such that they act as an extension of the line created by the stem. Place other petals equi-distant apart. Add the center of the flower. Glue on the leaves. 15
