I found the most wonderful Halloween lessons that could be turned into art sub lessons. Check these out!!!
Amy, at Makes and Takes, gives step by step instructions and many visuals for this lesson. She used black paper and oil pastel, but this could easily be done with crayon on a lighter paper.
At Panicked Teacher, Susie gives you step by step instructions on how to make this patterned pumpkin. I believe she is a classroom teacher who has to supplement art instruction in her class for most of the school year.
I adore this lesson. Jana's students (Room9Art) begged her for a Halloween lesson every year. She finally came up with this. I believe a sub could teach this with the right directions.
ArtfulNest, was written for middle school. You could write it up as a fifth grade lesson or sixth grade one. You could also bring it down to the upper primary grades with a change of media. Leave your subs some good visuals. They could teach this!
***Line FrØslev. There are wonderful things over there.
Here's one done for you already. Step by step instructions were written here by Ms. Crisco over at Crisco Art. Always a good type lesson to leave for a sub.
Here's a haunted house lesson that I created. The information about it is in a post at Art Sub Lessons. Art Sub Lessons - Halloween Haunted Houses
BONUS...Here's another one. Yippee!!! Creating Silly Monsters
Here's an extra goodie of my own. Subs will love if you leave a worksheet for those early finishers!!! This worksheet has an assortment of details for decorating their jack o' lantern. It also has a lightly drawn in pumpkin for them to use as a base. As a complete lesson, students could draw on another sheet, their own pumpkin shapes and use the worksheet as a reference. There is also a sheet with 3 sample decorated pumpkins. $.99 at my TeachersPayTeachers shop: Art Sub Lessons.
