Tuesday

earthday

We're celebrating Earthday a bit early in my kids school this year as it falls during spring break. I am doing a recycled art project with first graders this time. I think I have learned a few lessons since last year when I had second graders build all sorts of contraptions large and small and the glue took forever to dry. 
These kids are younger, so we're decorating backgrounds, cutting out our hand-prints and finding initials in the logos. They are having a blast and the teachers are appreciating less mess...

you are so good to take this on -- and so clever, too! The kids do look like they're having a good time.

The kids are so concentrated - this shows that they like what they are doing! Do they inspire you?:)The collages look quite interesting!
I'm using newspapers, too in my children's puppet studio when we glue...:O)
