Home for the Holidays: Finished Houses!

This is a follow-up blog post showing finished artwork from our mixed-media miniature house project.  So last time you saw them, they were cute.  They were little boxes with cardboard roofs and lawns. Sweet, right?Image

Well, one thousand sparkles, neon paint, feathers, buttons, and marbles later…..

ImageThey’re so WACKY, crazy, and jam-packed with personality and color. I just love how each house is so different from the next. Who WOULDN’T want to live on this street?  When 4th graders were finished, I asked them to write a sentence or two about their house on the back of their cardboard lawn. If you could say ANYTHING about your house, what would it be? Click here if you want to read some of those.

Warning: You’re about to be bombarded with A LOT of very overwhelming and brightly colored pictures. Hold on tight!


^ Just in case you’re wondering…I took this picture when I was flying over these in a miniature plane.  You can see that some students used the jars of mason lids to create backyard swimming pools!ImageImage

^Just walking down the street…. Envious of my neighbor’s perfectly manicured Elmer’s Glue shrubbery.


^A lawn filled with various shades and textures of green….Image

^ A doormat made out of dried glue: “H O M E.” Image

 ^ Stepping stones made out of soda pop tops and a whimsical white feather tree… Image

^ Love the columns on this house!Image

^ You can tell a boy made this house. It looks like it’s going to blast off into space!Image

^A darling little mailbox…


OK! Here are all of the 4th grade kids with their houses. Enjoy 🙂
