Sewing, Fashion Design, Construction,
Sewing headbands (with the option of open sewing) continued today and more children chose to work on headband designs using ribbons. Maren laid out materials she'll continue with later, Grace D. continued her headband from yesterday, Ellie sewed: "I'm making a blanket," and Lane and Lou Lou chose to work on a collaborative sewing piece and then made each other headbands. Some words from them as they worked:
Lou Lou: "We're going to make a new portfolio that's just Lou Lou and Laney."
Lane: "Lou Lou, do you want to come to my house today?"
Lou Lou: "If it works out."
Evelyn focused on thinking about what different materials could be used for and imagining what she needed. She sought out and then worked with a silver fabric, carefully wrapping it around a figure. When it didn't work, she accepted help from Sally.
Sally and Grace M. also worked together.
Sally: "We did it together."
Grace: "Look at her beautiful bracelet."

As Maren had presented the idea of building with clay, we offered clay slabs. Children also had the options of adding impressions to slabs, or holes for future sewing (through the slabs.) Open clay was also an option.
Maren & Grace D. built houses out of clay slabs, Maren also prepared a slab for future sewing and Austin made impressions in a clay slab.
Several children worked in open clay including Austin and Jack who made a volcano together.
