Welcome to June's Pick 3 Party hosted by Inspired Owl's Corner and PAWSitively Teaching!  Thanks for joining us!  If you are looking for some inspiration for great activities as the school year winds down, you have come to the right place!  Here are a few ideas that I have found on Pinterest that are great ideas for summer whether in school or not.

Great fun to create large tissue paper flowers. They can be used as decorations for a party, gifts or to complement a unit. Flowers can be attached to dowels or hung from the ceiling. They are very pretty and simple to make. Kids can enjoy following the pictorial directions to learn how to fold the tissue paper, trim the ends and fluff the papers to make pretty petals.

Such a great idea! Brainstorm summer fun ideas with kids and use those ideas to create a colorful Summer Bucket List Chart. Writing a list gives kids something to look forward to and a sense of accomplishment as they cross off completed items from their list. Everyone accomplishes more when they have a plan and this chart highlights summer plans as well as being a piece of art for the classroom and later their refrigerator. When there is "nothing to do," it's time to read the summer bucket list and be inspired.




June Beach Ball

Great activity to end the year. Have each kid bring in a beach ball from the dollar store. Then give kids time to collect autographs from classmates. A wonderful opportunity to be social and lots of fun too!
