Ant and Graduation Art

Yesterday we made these cute graduation kids. I originally got this idea last year from PeaceLoveKindergarten and you can grab the writing paper from my old post HERE. The kids just LOVE the addition of the real tassle!
Cool eye color!

He told me his short hair wouldn't show. TRUE!

Love the curls!

She made braids like her real hair!
We just finished learning about ants and read Hey Little Ant.

 I decided to make a little more detailed version of an idea I saw on  PeaceLoveKindergarten. I emailed them to find out how they would feel about me sharing my templates but I haven't heard back yet.

1.5 more days. Between baseball playoffs and report cards I am seriously behind in my blog reading. 
Is it weird that I am looking forward to summer so I can reconnect with you bloggers??



  1. Love both of these, hope you can share your template!

  2. So cute! I love both of these crafts.

  12. Hi there would love to do these next week for my graduating class. They have difficulty with art and so it would be super if you could share your template!! They're fabulous looking!!!

  13. Really cute ideas! Thank-you for sharing. Ditto to the above - would love to use your template, once it is available! How did you go about (organize) students creating their construction paper "kids"?

  14. These are absolutely ADORABLE!!!!! Thank you for the amazing idea, we will definitely be doing this in my classroom! I found your blog via pinterest and am your newest follower! Thanks again!!

  15. I love this idea! My students need a bit more direction this year when crafting and so I made templates for the body and head for my kids to use; it's available for free from my TPT store with credit given to you for the inspiration.
