    Here's a fun and EASY project for Open House! I take pictures (shoulders and up) of each of my students. On white construction paper, I have the students draw a large picture of the front of their own houses paying close attention to the details such as their yard, trees, swingset, etc. The pictures are outlined with a black crayon and then painted with watercolors. The front door of their house needs to be big enough for their picture. The door is cut open on 3 sides and the picture is put behind it. They are so cute! On Open House, the parents have to come into the room and find their own house on the students' desks. The kids love it and it's a great keepsake for the parents. I do this in 4th grade but I think it could be done in all grade levels. Have a great year!
