At my school, the foundation makes our art program possible. When they asked if I would be at the back to school family night, I agreed. They wanted a quick art project that was not too messy.
I chose art trading cards. I cut card stock into 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 rectangles and brought stamps, markers, crayons, and colored pencils. I borrowed a class set of stamp pads from one of our preschool teachers, covered the table with butcher paper and the kids went to work making mini masterpieces.
Students stamped, colored and created. Some shared with me, some shared with friends and some chose to keep their art. It was a fun inexpensive art project that gave families a small glimpse into the creative fun we have in the art room.
