Make Zine is an awesome resource for DIY projects across the board, but they also have a variety of arts and arts-related technology projects that could easily work in the classroom.

Just a sample of projects on their site:

Moving Papercraft Toys, Egg Carton Rainbow Hats, Chalkboard Cloud Mobiles, Electronic Cards, Dyed Play Silks, and tons more!

It’s also worth mentioning that there are a number of interesting articles on “lost technologies” on their blog, including how to make early optical toys/inventions like phenakistoscopes and magic lanterns.
