If you need a quick, fun activity to save a little sanity this month, check out my editable “What Should My Teacher Be For Halloween?” art project Freebie.
You can use it as a writing center, morning work, fast finisher, or to get a little breather on one of those crazy October afternoons.
It’s super easy!
Step 1: Cut your head out of one of those lovely school pictures.
Step 2: Download the freebie from my store and choose which printable you want to use – edit the writing portion to your liking.
Step 3: Glue the head on top of one of the printable bodies (or draw your own body like I did below).
Step 4: Make copies on a photo setting (if your printer has one). If there’s no photo setting, typically a lighter copy setting works best.
Step 5: Use this as a writing center or art activity before Halloween!
The results are always fantastic! See my second graders’ most recent ideas below.
I’ve been doing this activity forever and have tried a few different clip art bodies to see which one ended up with the best student designs. All three versions of this activity are in a FREE editable PowerPoint so you can choose which one you like best. (I prefer the draw your own version as you can see in the pics above.)
Want more pictures of this activity? There are 3 versions of the activity included in the freebie:
“Man Hands” version – this didn’t quite work out how I wanted, maybe with a bigger head? (See how I’m being reflective here?)
“Stick Figure” version – I think these turned out quite nicely, but the “Draw it Yourself” ones are still my fave.
Try it out? I would love to see your finished art pieces! Tag me on IG @iwanttobeasuperteacher or email pics to me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can share them in an upcoming blog post. I seriously LOVE to see how these turn out in your classrooms!
Happy October Super Teacher,
