Craft Projects

Just a few sample projects from this file. Left, the birch bark birdfeeder. Next, the miniature decoupage bottle. Next the papier-mâché pizzas. Far Right, a decoupage seed/bean abstract mosaic.
      My craft resource does not include projects accompanied with lesson plans. Only brief descriptions, supply list and directions are discussed along with the photographs. I believe that elementary art educators and homeroom teachers find the use of crafts helpful to the development of both small motor skills and self confidence in their students. For this reason, I will include some craft ideas and helpful links under this category that may prove beneficial.
