Abe Lincoln Art


Since I teach a self-contained class of kids grades K-3, I end up teaching some kids for up to 4 years in a row! As a result, often I will come up with alternate art activities for a holiday, etc. so kids don't make the same stuff each year.  This year's Lincoln project was super easy!  Ahead of time I cut each paper plate into a U shape, and then used a glue gun to adhere a small popsicle stick to it. Then kids painted the paper plates black. After they dried, we stapled each plate onto a black stovetop hat.  Kids loved their Lincoln masks!! We did this after reading the book, "Abe Lincoln's Hat."  Super easy and they turned out great!!!  Click here for last year's Abe Lincoln craft.
