2015 New Year's Writing Craftivity

While my wife Julie and I were brainstorming ideas for the clipart store, she told me about this idea she had for a sort of New Year's resolution activity for her students ... and that it could also make a great product to sell on Teachers Pay Teachers.  She told me how she thought it would work and then I started drawing.

After a couple of trial "faces" and "hair" I printed out what I had and Julie and I figured out what the final size of everything should be.  While Julie put together the goals and resolution pages, I had to re-draw or edit a few of the items and then drew the best part, the 2015 glasses!

Finally, I had all the parts and pieces drawn that we would need for the final product.  Here's what the glasses, head, hands and feet looked like:


And here are the different hair styles for boys and girls:


Then Julie had me print out the pieces on different colored construction paper ... And when we were finally able to put it altogether I think it looked great!




Julie now has the product uploaded to her Teachers Pay Teachers store, which can be found here. (Link will open in a new window.)

It was a fun product to do and am proud I was able to help Julie with the custom clipart needed to put this together.  And who knows, maybe I'll be able to use these parts and pieces for another product or maybe even as part of a future clipart set!
