Willa cut out dinosaurs and created scenes around them. About the Brontosaurus: "It's like 100 feet. One hundred feet into the sky." Willa is very curious about measurement - she and Melanie discussed her dad's height.
Carl, Lila, Prater, Hadley, and Grace were excited to try new materials in the studio. They used knitting needles and other tools to draw and write on Aluminum Tooling Foil, a challenge requiring a great deal of fine motor strength. Lila narrated as she drew: "An A for Alex. A baby A. I'm gonna make a house made of an A. I'm gonna make an arrow so you know it's the top of the house. I'm making a gingerbread house. (sings) "You can't catch me . . ."
When Lila realized by turning her foil over that her drawing could be seen through to the other side, she exclaimed, "Both sides! When I draw on it, it sends it to the other side. Draw, draw, draw, and then SEND! It sends to the other side to the next side. Isn't that cool?" Carl added, "I draw on one side. I don't have to draw on the other side."
