Innovative art project "stuffs" classroom with creativity

img_215210213914jpg_slide_big Is your kid sick of the boring old crayon-on-construction-paper art projects he does at school all the time ? Can't blame him. That's why teacher Anne Karsten decided to give her pupils a new task: Designing and making original stuffed animals. The fourth and fifth graders first sketched their monsters, and then snipped, stuffed and sewed them into plush playthings. The finished toys (which are super cute) were then sold (back to the parents, of course) as a fundraiser for the school. Genius, no? I think we might have some Project Runway contestants on our hands...
