Gift Making Continues
Our ongoing projects and open experiences for gift-making continued today including the collaborative reflective light for the school and individual projects. Building and dancing with light were also options but all of the children chose to remain engaged with the various projects. Here are a few highlights!
Taking on a Challenge with the Collaborative Light
As yesterday's challenge was so successful in expanding the ideas children applied to the reflective light, we began again with a challenge of either using materials which haven't been chosen before (like yesterday) OR gluing reflective materials to metal discs that can later be attached to the frame. All four children chose the second part of the challenge which opened the opportunity to use some of our favorite shiny/reflective materials we haven't been able to use previously. This mainly included a variety of gem-like materials.
Grace David also had an idea she envisioned that was glittery. Grace McColough described something that is used in Tucker Room for birthday committees. The children decided to go looking for it and Grace M. described it to Lisa who helped us recover this prized material: GLITTER! The children continued their work adding glitter along side the other shiny materials.
We can't wait to attach these pieces to the light's frame!!
Shiny ornaments, collages & messages, name tags, and wrapping
Lou Lou made a message for Sally. She worked diligently adding tiny fold-up pieces explaining it is an Advent Calendar.
Austin and Lou Lou decided to check the mailboxes to see who didn't have a message. Then they made one Elle.
