Art and Craft
For Young Students

Craft and art projects are for children between the ages of 4 and 9. By doing these projects students improve their creativity and become ready for more advanced presentations and model making that is required in higher grades.  

Younger children use Styrofoam balls to make snowperson, mouse, cat, models of fruits, models of flowers and other artistic products.

After the age of 9 students use Styrofoam balls to make models of atoms, molecules, Solar System, Earth. Moon.

In all such projects you will use Styrofoam balls along with wood glue, water based paints and other household or craft items such as thread, buttons, color fabric and pins. 

Bellow is a sample instruction:

Sparkles the Snowperson

Sparkles is a very easy snowperson to create.

  • 2 1/2" Styrofoam ball
  • 3" Styrofoam ball (Note: or use 3 balls each slightly larger than the others)
  • 4 toothpicks
  • Mini black pom poms
  • Orange chenille stem (pipe cleaner)
  • Wire cutters
  • Tacky glue
  • A piece of ribbon or felt
  • A butter knife

Here is what you do:

  1. Take a butter knife and even off the bottom of the largest Styrofoam ball. This will allow the snowman to stand up.
  2. Push a toothpick halfway into the top of the largest Styrofoam ball. (Make sure the flat bottom is on the table).
  3. Push the medium-sized Styrofoam ball onto the toothpick.
  4. Push a toothpick a little more than halfway into the top of the medium-sized Styrofoam ball. (Note: You don't want the toothpick sticking out the top of the head!)
