A Head, Arms, and Legs for the Constellation Guardian
This week, the constellation guardian crew was introduced to a material new to St. John's! Brown Room had purchased hair foils, which are used in salons. The foils are thinner and lighter than aluminum foil and have the added advantage of being embossed with subtle rainbow colors. Naturally, enthusiasm ran high as children incorporated them into the work.
Nora - (Folding and crumpling multiple pieces of the new foil) Sparkly, shiny! More sparkly shiny!
Audrey - We can use it for hair. It's rainbow hair.
Nora - We don't know if it (the guardian) is a girl or a boy. (She looks at the hair that Audrey has added). I think it's a girl because it has a lot of long hair.
Yesterday was devoted to the hair and face of the guardian. Today we put all the elements together!
Nora - The arms should be shorter than the legs, so these (holding pieces) should be the arms. (She begins to twist wire to attach the arms) I think I need a tool.
Nora and Lucia twist wire to attach the arms and the star-shaped hands.
Lucia - These (indicating the points of the stars) could be the fingers.
Nora - (Attaching more materials to the body) I'm doing this the easy way (by twisting the wire on to the frame of the body). Making this guardian has been so fun for me!
Of course, the eating was even better than the preparation! Some of the reviews:
George - They were so good.
Maxon - I loved eating it. It was so tasty.
Nora - 10 thumbs up!
Audrey - It was yummy.
Reed - I would say, yummy, yummy, yummy, yummy!
C.C. - 10, 000 thumbs up!
Janie - Mmmmmm. I like it with the blueberries and strawberries.
On Thursday, children collaborated on three large structures.
Today, there were similar themes. Lucia built something else that would clean up andJack made a structure that EVERYONE could fit inside. (Jack had to leave before we got the picture taken, but he fit inside as well!)
Have a wonderful weekend and
