Art Sub Idea - Easy Shape Tracing

This lesson would be great for an art sub with just a small bit of tweaking. I can't imagine leaving a lesson that includes black tempera paint, but there are work arounds.




From experience, I know that kids love tracing. Cans. Coffee lids. Flat tools. The more diverse, the better. Crayons are a perfect medium here and great to leave with subs.

Get inspiration from this gorgeous lesson from The Moffatt Girls.

Early Finishers Worksheet - Create a Frog in Disguise

Early finishers worksheets are great to have on hand. Subs will especially love them. When kids declare that their work is absolutely finished, it is such a help to hand them something creative to work on.  They can engage in a fun activity that gives them a creative outlet. Check this out at my TeachersPayTeachers shop here: Create a Frog in Disguise .

Ideas for Art Sub Plans

"The worst part of my job is preparing for a sub." That is a statement we can probably all agree with. You need to spend tons of time to describe even the tiniest of directions. That quote is from "Art Project Girl." She made it a little bit easier for you though, by posting this art sub plan.
