Happy Birthday Bailee!
Ellie, Seon and Louisa all worked collaboratively to mix and achieve a red color to use on the hoop.
Ellie: Good painting, Seon
Louisa: Ah! the red, it's getting there (off the paper)
Ellie: I'm painting inside the hoop. Ah there's paint on my arm!
Seeing Ford and Ellie's interest in stringing larger materials on the wire, I (Elena) decided to offer beautifully painted pieces of paper in addition to materials to hang on the mobile. We asked the children to mix some colors of red for Bailee, and we ended up with four distinct shades ranging from a pale pink to a deep, brick red. The children then worked on painting and collaging the strips as additions to the gift.
On the fourth day, children collaged the painted strips and added it to the mobile. Ford was particularly focused on hanging his strips, and spent a lot of time pulling the string through the wire until he felt it was at the appropriate length to be tied.
