Paper Circle Dinosaur


It is time for another Tuesday Art Linky.

Please link up any blog post {in the comments below} that shows a Pre/K-6 classroom art idea. It can be a project, idea, management technique or tip. 

Today I would like to share with you, an idea for a paper craft that you can make out of paper circles. I like to have a stack of craft ideas that are simple to prepare and help with essential paper skills. Once you have done a few projects with your class, you will be amazed how efficient and creative they will become. And how you can whip up a creative lesson in minutes.

You can have a new classroom display up in a small 'spare time session' that might otherwise be time wasted.

All you need for this one is coloured paper circles (we call them Brenex Circles here in Australia), scissors and glue. You can also use the printable template I have provided at the end of this post, if you prefer. 

Simply teach your students how to fold a paper circle into halves, quarters, eighths and sixteenths. Ask older students to record the fractions on each piece of the artwork.

A good idea is to get a good bundle cut out and then let students explore different shapes and creations of their own.


I have more of these ideas in a resource file on TpT. To find it, click on the image below:
