Add a craft element to a lesson. Do a project such as origami, decorating a paper plate, making a gift card. Crafts in the classroom demand the use of instructional vocabulary, and good listening skills. No doubt, for most, it is also a lot of fun. Choice of project will depend on the age, sex and level of the students - don't force every class to do a handwork project.
To introduce crafts, youtube is a great way to show students basics of listening to instructions. Youtube has thousands of art videos of how to make all kinds of craft items.
