Here’s a cool art project I recently saw. Each student got a single piece of wood (stirring sticks from Home Depot) and decorated it to represent them. Then they glued them together and then tied fancy string on the bottom before attaching it to a frame. It’s a fragile project, so you have to display it somewhere with little nearby traffic. But it sure looks cool!
This could also be a cool project for individual students. Have each student decorate wood pieces based on different areas of their life (ex- one stick for summer, school, each family member, hobbies, goals, etc.).
