Headbands..... and Masks
At today's meeting, we revisited the headband ideas that were generated yesterday. Some new ideas emerged:
Lou Lou - I would make a tiara.
Louise - A rainbow headband.... I'm gonna make it out of fabric. I'm gonna start with fabric and put some beads on it and then these (points to small crystals/gems on her headband.
Lou Lou - I'm gonna make a valentine headband.
Some of the online images went beyond the typical head band. Perhaps this lead the children to consider working with another form today....masks. Children shared other ideas as well. Louise had started with a rainbow headband. Grace D. took that idea and made a rainbow heart. This theme continued as Grace M. made a heart mask. As Joslin worked on a panda mask, Gigi was inspired. "I'm making a mask, too. It's made of fabric and ribbons." She added there might be some wacky stuff, "I'll decide when I start to make it."
Sewing.... with a Twist
For weeks, children have been preparing clay slab and pieces of wood for sewing. Today we were able to start sewing on these novel materials.
Valentine's Day is in the Air!
The Message Center was a popular place as children made messages in shades of pink and red. There was additional enthusiasm for this process as the Tucker Room had made mailboxes for Victor and Lucilla during the morning.
