Art Class 3/16/12

Today we did  paper mache.  Our teacher thought that this project would fill up the entire 2 hours.  It took the children about 40 minutes to finish putting three layers of paper on their balloons or rockets.  They really enjoyed it though.  I have only done paper mache with them one (it is soooo messy) time to make dinosaur eggs and Lily and Christian were too little to remember.  I was really pleased that this was a project that interested Christian.  He doesn't always participate.  Lillian got tired of it after the first layer so I got to finish hers.  Since they finished so quickly she gave them masks to decorate.  After that they got to design a village on construction paper and use some foam stickers to decorate.  We still were finished 20 minutes early, but we were fine with that since the weather was so beautiful we headed to the park with some friends to have a picnic.  I didn't take very many pictures because I was elbow deep in paper mache.
