3D Baseball Craft

Our summer school unit/theme is baseball this year, so today we did a 3D baseball art project that worked on scissors skills, fine motor, following directions...

I prepped by tracing three circles on white cardstock per student (I traced a smallish paper plate) and tracing two red curved lines on each "ball." The kids cut the circles out, folded, glued and used Q-tips to dot red paint for the baseball "stitches." We hung them from our ceiling:

I didn't get great photos - hard to snap a good one with my phone while the baseballs are spinning in the breeze from our multiple fans (our air conditioning at school was broken today - on the hottest day of the summer so far!).

But, you can find great directions with photos at Pitter Patter Art - I can't remember if this was a pinterest find or I just stumbled across it on some random blog clicks - but it was a simple, fun project that turned out great!
