Looking for an awesome directed drawing project that's sure to brighten up your classroom? Here it is! You can have a lot of fun with this one!

You could just pair the gorgeous drawings along with a fun gingerbread story (that's what I'm doing for distance learning this year!), but when I'm in face-to-face class I like to do this:

1. ART and LISTENING/FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS: Create the directed drawings (students can choose to do the boy or girl or both - they're both in the same super easy-to-teach show!), then we set them aside.

2. LITERACY: Next, we read "Gingerbread Man Loose in the School." On the last page, there's a mysterious note (!!!) and it turns out to be from our gingerbread drawings?! Apparently we drew them so well that they came to life and are now running around loose in our school! (As you can imagine- kids LOVE this!)

3. COMMUNITY FUN and PROBLEM SOLVING: So we tip toe through the school, trying to find them. 6 sweet rhyming clues are included. Eventually it leads us back to class where we discover the drawings have returned to their paper selves and left us a treat to remind us to stay sweet! The treat can be a coloring sheet (included) or maybe even a real gingerbread cookie- you pick!

This purchase includes 3 files:

✏️ Print and Go, "Perfect Start" Paper (has special starting points already lightly printed on it to ensure ALL artists get off to a perfect start!)

✏️a gorgeous, full color show that guides everyone step-by-step through the drawing process. You get detailed photos, clear explanations worded in ways that kids understand, tips and reassurance for artists, and loads of creative variations so all YOU have to do is flip through this show and read what it says aloud, one page at a time. Super simple to teach!

✏️and a super fun optional addition: everything you need to take your kids on an interactive 6 clue HUNT... because you know... sometimes those directed drawings turn out SO WELL that they temporarily come to life and decide to go explore your school! ;) Ha ha! How much will kids LOVE this?! ALL the details are included to make it stress-free and simple for you.

Your students will be AMAZED with what they are capable of drawing! I ADORE this project... it allows kids to impress themselves and boost their confidence as artists!

I can assure you this project is not too hard for 4-5 year olds... and it's tons of fun for all ages! I've personally used it with 4-12 year olds and they all loved it! :)

For a closer look and more details, please check out the preview! :)
