Last week I told you I was going to make a better attempt at doing art class with the kids.
Two Fridays ago, we got our craft on with this little Easter
You've seen those little egg people filled with dirt and grass growing out of their heads, right?
Well, we decided to do that, but to dress them in their Sunday best.
Here's what we used, besides the eggs.
First we decorated our egg cup with fabric scraps and buttons to make their clothes.
Then we filled our empty egg shells with potting soil.
Then gave them faces and dressed them and sprinkled in some grass seeds.
And look what happens when they're watered....
Not sure why that one on the left has fangs or why that one on the right is a cyclops, but hey...it's art, right??
So today's Wednesday, which means art class today...I've got another fun project for the "students" to do. Hopefully I can share that tomorrow.
And Friday is egg dying night. I'm so excited for that :)
Although, I'm trying to keep my curtains closed because it doesn't look like Easter time.
In fact, it's snowing.
April has forgotten it's role of pretty rainstorms and flowers peaking up from the soil.
I think April is in a bit of a rut.
Maybe it needs some B vitamins ;)
PS: Some of you were asking yesterday why I take B vitamins....well, number one: my mom told me to.
Also, it's big job is to convert your food you eat into energy and keep your blood levels correct so you are better apt to fight off sickness.
For me, it's the energy thing...I need it.
I have 3 kids.
There isn't enough energy, ever!
Hope that helps to those of you who were wondering :)
