Gluing, Glazing, and Stitching
Today we furthered our work with beads and books by making more paper beads, (repetition helps us build those skills!) glazing the previously formed clay beads, and stitching in our mixed-media books.
Grace and Louise had a chance to make machine-sewn books and were thrilled to make their choices of "special paper" to sew between the pages of watercolor paper. Elena and Caleb were interested in returning to the sewing machine to sew other materials to the cover and pages of their books from yesterday. All of the children had the opportunity to practice guiding their work through the machine independently as these thick books tend to go off-track. The children also used the thread-cutter on the side of the machine and Caleb was able to help wind a bobbin!

We also had a grand time playing in the snow. Tegan led a game about Crystal City where the children searched for crystals, there were some mini-snowball fights, a game of hide and seek, and snow creations. We're looking forward to our field trip to see the Rodarte Exhibit tomorrow!
