New at Instructor: craft videos for teachers
By Guest Blogger on December 13th, 2012
Guest blogger Tara Welty, editor of Instructor magazine, shares the latest videos for teachers.
The minute Jim Noonan walked into my office I knew he was perfect for Instructor. He’s the kind of person who is an endless well of creative energy—one can’t help but get swept up in his ideas. Jim is a professional crafter with such swanky credits as “staff crafter on The Martha Stewart Show” and he also creates and sells science kits for kids. A Martha-approved crafter who cares deeply about education? Hired!
In the past, we’ve only printed photos of the crafts in the magazine, but Jim is so dynamic, it didn’t seem fair to keep him behind the scenes. We just had to make some videos to share with you!
Without further ado, please enjoy Jim Noonan’s festive winter craft projects.
How to Make Potpourri
Don’t throw away those snack-time orange peels! Dry them out and add spices to make potpourri. Students will learn about dehydration, rehydration, and evaporation while creating festive gifts to bring home!
How to Make a Melted Crayon Mobile
Melt crayon shavings to create a colorful mobile that looks like stained glass.
How to Make a Recycled Snowflake
