Wacky Nature Portraits!

Created By Charlotte



LET’S GET WACKY!!


Grades: K-5


Materials:

-pencil or pen

-drawing paper

-flowers, leaves, sticks, rocks, moss, etc.

-mirror (optional)


Steps:

  • Look at yourself in a mirror or from a photo and draw your face (feel free to draw your whole body if you’re up for a challenge)Don’t worry too much if your portrait looks like you. As you can tell from above, mine doesn’t look too much like me at all but I’m ready to move on to the fun part!



  • Collect an assortment of items from your yard, the sidewalk, or a nearby park. I found some green leaves, little red leaves, ferns, and tiny white flowers.

  • Play around adding the plants or items from nature to your portrait in different places! Think about texture and color.



If you are really happy with your design, glue everything down and hang up!



“BINGO” Card Game

By Brendan


Grade Level: K-5


Individual or multiple people: 3+ players


Theme: A basic card game that is very similar to the actual BINGO game!


Materials: 2 standard 52-card decks of cards


Location: Any flat surface to play a basic card game.


Instructions:

  1. From the first deck of cards, five cards are dealt to each player face up. There will be at least two players as well as one "Caller" who will call out the card values that players must match in order to complete their "BINGO" hand.

  2. From the second deck of cards, the "Caller" will select a card, one at a time, and call out the rank and suit of the card - for example "queen of hearts." The player with the called card turns it face down. The first player to turn all their cards face down wins!

Further instructions or accommodations: You can play this with just 2 people (one caller and one player) but it is more fun to play with multiple players trying to compete to get BINGO first!
