Calling All Teachers! Plan Your New Year Classroom Crafts with Hook and Loop Tape Projects
The New Year is just around the corner and you’re desperate for new and creative classroom crafts to surprise your kids with. Don’t worry, we’ve been there, and we have some awesome ideas for you. One of our favorite craft supplies that we keep on hand (and in bulk) is hook and loop tape.
What’s Hook and Loop Tape, you ask? It’s basically the generic brand of Velcro but more affordable! You can use it the same way. It’s easy, cheap, and makes for some great classroom crafts.
In this article, we’re diving into three fun and exciting crafts using hook and loop tape that your kids will love. Break into the new year right with these lively crafts.
3 Fun Classroom Crafts You and Your Students Will Love
Need crafts that are educational, fun, and attention-grabbing? We’ve got the perfect projects that will keep your students entertained and make learning fun!
Create and Venn Diagram Creature
Teaching your kids about ideas that are similar and different? Introduce them to the Venn Diagram! Make a large Venn Diagram out of felt and secure it to the wall using hook and loop tape.
Then, have your kids create their creatures. Stick a little tab of hook and loop tape to the back (these tiny circular adhesives work great) of the creature and allow your students to easily share with the entire class. Switching between projects with hook and loop tape makes it a breeze.
Custom Snowman Building
Another perfect felt project for your students is custom snowman building. This is a great craft if you’re teaching colors or a foreign language. Have various sets of three, blank, white circles (your snowmen canvas) cut out and posted around the room.
Have the kids cut out their own snowman features out of felt like eyes, noses, scarves, and buttons, etc. Have them stick the hook and loop adhesive to the back and have each of them take turns building their own personal snowman.
Sticky Popsicle Stick Shapes
Teaching your students about shapes? What’s a better way to do so than having them experiment with building their own polygons and octagons?
Grab some popsicle sticks (the colored ones are way more fun) and attach a bit of hook and loop tape to the end of each side. Have the kids experiment with making their own shapes from a triangle to a decagon!
Want to add math to the learning mix? Draw numbers on each of the sticks and have the students add up the sticks and practice their addition skills.
