    open house idea
    By Kim

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I have had my students make stuffed dummies to put in their chairs for open house. They bring an old sweatsuit or shirt and pants and then we stuff them with newspaper. We make the heads from two paper plates and connect the heads to the bodies with metal clothes hangers.

    The kids love to make their faces and add yarn for hair. Then when parents come in they need to find their children. The kids and parents love this!

    When I do this I have always had my best open house attendance. The kids can't wait to get their parents in to see what they have done!
