Wednesday Art Day: Labor Day Tool Belts

 

In deciding what project I wanted our class to focus on for today’s Art Day, I thought it would be fun to have a little discussion about the recent holiday we celebrated–Labor Day! Before beginning to design our tool belts, we had a discussion about the meaning of the word labor (Google told us it means: “work, especially hard physical work”) and watched a cute little video about people who work.

Later, we colored some tools. (Click the pictures below to enlarge.).

Finally, Miss McWoodson stapled together our tool belts!

This was a very fun, simple craft, and I like that it related to the recent holiday we had in the United States. It took me longer than expected to fit students for belts (hence me only getting through about 5 students today!). Also, I can’t figure out how to make the belt adjustable. Future goals!
