Hello friends. I've taken a little break from the blog. Thanks to those of you who emailed me to make sure all was well. Our family had a great holiday break. I did lots of knitting and relaxing. I also spent some time cleaning up my craft room!
We had an extra 2 days off last week because of the bitter cold in Minnesota. My little preschoolers were so happy to be back at school on Wednesday. I think their parents were happy too! Our theme of the week was the Mitten. Our first project was made with fabulous sponges from Lakeshore. Find them here...
I have to rave about these sponges. There is a great variety of shapes and textures. While we were painting, the preschoolers would remark on the shape of the sponge they were painting with, and the color. I love to see them learning while they are playing.
We also used glitter paints from Lakeshore... bright colors and glitter... how can you go wrong?
To finish the projects up, I matted them on colored cardstock, just to make the colors pop. They are hung on a clothesline with clothespins in the hallway. The sponges washed up beautifully. I can't wait to use them again.
Are you watching the Golden Globes tonight? It's award show season... big fun! Come back Wednesday and see this cute felt version of the Mitten.
