This is a great project for Mother’s Day, or Art Day! Students receive a milk carton, and can choose a paper to wrap around as the pattern for the outside of the house. Then, they can choose roof tiles and make tiny decorations to bring their house to life. For Art Day, this project pairs very well with Clothespin Peeps!
If doing this project for Mother’s day, the house can be glued onto a green base and accompanied with a tree, some flowers, and a nice Mother’s day quote.
Variations: This project could be done to learn about community and neighborhoods. What does a community need? One child could make a police station, another could make the town store, etc… Similar to the map mural, but in 3D!
