Welcome to Dream, Draw Create!
This blog features art projects for children. These projects have been used in my classes. My lessons allow children to learn about all the elements and principles of art while striving to introduce them to many genres of art.

A chair for a Teddy Bear

This lesson was so much fun for Grades 2 and 3. I got the idea from Patty at Deep Space Sparkle. She had posed the question to other art teachers asking for ideas for 3D lesson plans. A seasoned art teacher, Phyl at There's a Dragon in my Art room had shared the idea of making Teddy Bear chairs from cardboard. It sounded like a real winner so I came up with these with my students. We have them on display and everyone is enjoying them so much. They are made from 7 inch cardboard seats and backs with paper towel and toilet paper rolls for the legs. A hot glue gun held them together nicely. Lots of work but well worth the smiles they brought to the kids faces!
