Pastel art with a watercolour and salt wash, the ideas are endless. Also this site has lots of fun classroom art ideas. Do this with the Native American legend book "Thirteen Moons on a Turtle's Back".
Such a fun exciting idea. Great memory for kids-love it! (Wish my kids teachers did this!) Count down the hours of the last day of school popping balloons filled with fun activities! - Cute end of the year idea.
