August Cloverbud 4 H Meeting

Our county fair is coming up in September.  I had planned on our club using the month of July and August to make crafts to put in the fair.  My plans had to change at the last minute because the day of our scheduled July meeting was the day we had to leave and fly to New York for my mother in law's funeral.  Our July meeting was rescheduled for last night and it will be the only meeting we have before the fair.  The craft I found was sand art from Oriental Trading.  Here is the one I bought.  Our group has children ranging in age from 3-10.  The sand art was a really fun project.  There were three different designs to choose from and each one came with it's own separate packages of sand.  We put paper plates under each one to catch any loose sand.  The hardest part was peeling off the paper.  It was difficult to pull just one area and if you didn't do it right it exposed the cardboard and the sand wouldn't stick. Most of the children needed help with that.  We had a small group last night with only 10 participating children and 2 babies and luckily there were 5 adults and 1 teen helper so the children had plenty of help.
