Pick 3: This Month's Top Pinterest Picks

I'm super excited to be linking up with a brand new monthly linky, Pick 3:  This Month's Top Pinterest Picks, hosted by PAWSitively Teaching and Inspired Owl's Corner!  The idea is pretty self-explanatory, highlight three great ideas found on Pinterest that you plan to use in your classroom this month.  (I know, I explained anyway...a teacher thing, right?) It's so hard to narrow it down to three in December, but here are a few of my favorites!

{3D Snowflakes Tutorial} Winter craft your kids can do solo. Easy DIY holiday decorating. *So cool

I have been making these snowflakes with my students for a few years, and I love them! They are surprisingly easy, and so beautiful!  This pin from Lasso the Moon has a couple of sweet little girls showing you how to make these amazing snowflakes.  Here's a look at how ours turned out last year...

One Thrifty Chick: Walking in a Winter Wonderland { First Grade Style }

I love this idea of having a hot chocolate bar at the holiday party and the pictures of this party from One Thrifty Chick are adorable!  I wish I had that much time to prep for my party!

MaryMaking: Colorful Abstract Winter Trees

I would love to find the time to make these beautiful watercolor trees featured on MaryMaking!  Unfortunately in my district, students don't get art class after third grade and with all the curriculum calendars and testing schedules, it just doesn't leave time for things like this.  Maybe we can squeeze it in that last week before break!

Make sure you check out all the other great Pinterest finds at Pick 3!


  1. Those snowflakes are beautiful, Stephanie!! No art after third grade??? What a shame!
