Any fun, hands-on ideas about teaching compound words? Thanks!
I write each word on a small sentence strip or flashcard. (Ex. base ball) I split the class up. Make two lines. I give one line the first word in the compound word. Then I give the 2nd line the second word in the compound word. I tell them that they have 5 minutes to find their partner and to stand a line. After they find their partner. They tell the class what the word is and put it in a sentence.
They love it. I would include a picture of the compound word for them to match up at the end.
My kids will take a piece of paper and fold it so there are two flaps. On one flap they write the first word, the other flap they write the second word. They also draw pictures. Then, they open up the flaps and inside write the compound word and draw a picture of it.
I laminated a chart where the students had to find the first part, match it with the second part, and find the completed compound word.
We too draw pictures we brainstorm compound words and then they try to think of one of their own and draw picture sometimes we have fun with them like cowboy we draw a cow dressed like a boy.

On Enchanted learning they have a new group of worksheets for compound words, you might get some ideas there.
