"arrays" full of sunshine {mini giveaway}

My friends this year love being crafty and I love it too, especially this time of the year! :)  We are currently in the middle of our study of multiplication and we've been having so much fun.  I love, love, love teaching multiplication because of how visual it is.  I feel that beginning multiplication is a skill that most kids just "get" because they can see it. 

We just started focusing on arrays and last night the inspiration hit me for a fun little craftivity, "arrays" full of sunshine. :)  I gave each of my friends a multiplication equation and let them go to town.  I always run my templates on construction paper in our copier, easy breezy, nice and easy!

My sample!

 This little craftivity was perfect for this time of the year, since summer is so, so close.  I only have three days left and can hardly wait.  Of course my list of end of the year "chores" is about a mile long, but that's okay, summer is near! :) 

If you're interested, you can pick up the tracers/templates necessary to make your own "arrays" full of sunshine at my Teachers Pay Teachers and Teacher Notebook stores.
 I'll be giving a copy of this craftivity to the first person who correctly guesses the color of my class' fun and field day t dye shirts. :) Don't worry, no funky colors here.  :)  I used a regular ole bottle of liquid Rit.  

Happy Friday! :)
