In my clay book, Clay Lab for Kids, I created this Fairy Door project. I decided to do it recently with my fourth grade students. We needed a short project (30 minute class, if possible...although most needed 2 classes) and one that would be a hit. We call them Mystery Creature door to allow the kids to really get the wheels turning on just what lies behind their door. I created a video in case you'd like to do this lesson with your students!
Stay tuned on how we plan to finish these (tempera cakes, most likely!) and the story-writing component we plan to tie in. Also how we are going to 'hide' these in the school to get the creative wheels turning for students who discover them!
