We decided to do one of our bigger art projects today, since it's their last day on Christmas vacation. We do some form of arts and crafts every day.... and my playroom shows it! I don't let them paint upstairs though; it's limited to cutting and gluing, so we have been working on these in the dining room.
They are crayola treat jars, that are supposed to hold animal treats. We don't have indoor pets, so this is pointless for us. I encourage imagination a lot, so I left it open for them to decorate them how they wanted (they didn't like the stencils, so we threw them away), and they are going to use the jars however they want. K plans to put Polly Pocket stuff in hers. I don't know what J will use it for, but I would bet it will be for markers and stuff like that.
After they dry for 24 hrs, I have to bake them in the oven. Am I the only one that used to LOVE the mudhut ceramic shop??? This reminds me of hours spent there, and I loved it!
