Holiday DIY Projects from Design Squad Nation

confettiThe last few weeks before winter break can be tedious, as both students and teachers count down the days till their well-deserved holiday. Make the wait fun with awesome holiday projects from Design Squad Nation.

If things aren’t festive enough in your classroom, start the party with a homemade confetti launcher! You can see a how-to video here and a detailed description of how to make the confetti cannon here.

For some festive and slightly devious holiday merriment, have your students hack a recordable greeting card and turn it into a mini sound system.

If aren’t feeling quite as ambitious, pop-up holiday cards are a fun and easy project the whole class will enjoy.

Happy Holidays from WFSU!
