Monday Made-it

Although this was posted before, I just realized that it reverted to a draft. Don't know how that happened. So I'm reposting it.
I'm linking up with 4th Grade Frolics. This is my first time joining a linky so I hope I'm doing this correctly.

My theme is space. It includes stars, planets, rockets and robots. This weekend I made one of those face cutouts using a robot character. On the first day of school the students will be able to poke their heads through the opening in the robot's head and become little robots for a few minutes. I'm sure they'll love it! I think I'll use the photo for the cover of their writing journal.

Supplies: presentation board, poster paint, foam cutouts, exacto knife

I drew the robot freehand and painted it. Then I added the self-stick foam stars and gears. Finally, I cut out the opening for the face (black area).


  1. This is really cute, I can't believe you drew it by hand. Thanks for sharing.


  2. This is so cool! Your students are going to love this robot. Thanks for sharing your great idea.


  3. Wow...I am very impressed! I would love to do this for my robot theme this year. Unfortunately, my free-hand drawing is not up to par with yours. Maybe I shall try anyway! Thanks for sharing. I LOVE this idea!

    1. Thanks to everyone that has left a comment. It really encourages me!

      Liliris, you could find a robot image and project it onto the board. Then all you'd have to do is trace it.

  4. That is such a fun idea! How creative. The kids are going to love it! Thanks for sharing!
