This project was a happy accident discovered by my preschool class. Here’s how it happened:
I bought paper plates and several packages of “silk” fall leaves from the Dollar Store.
I then cut out the center of the paper plates so we could make fall wreaths.
Art time began in class…the plate rims were covered in glue and the leaves were flying…then at the finish several of the students hung their wreaths on their heads like a hat. It started a revolution and our fall wreaths suddenly became autumn halos. It was awesome and I liked the halos much much better than my original wreaths. (Kids are so cool.)
This is Gracie wearing hers…she wears it all the time…she loves it. If Thanksgiving was with our cousins this year we would be making these for a predinner activity. (It’s perfect—easy, not messy, and kids like it.)
I like these halos so much that they may be making a come back covered in feathers… poinsettias… $store flowers… who knows?…the possibilities are endless.
I only wish I had a photo of my class leaving the room in their halos.
Oh, well, there’s always next time. (And there will be a next time.)
