A Saturday with Jade's family
Thank you for sharing your traditions and delicious chocolate croissants with us! We will make sure to look for Jade's 'moss bridge' next time we're in Dumbarton Oaks Park!
Chocolate Croissants was one of the many "new foods" we have tried in the Brown Room lately. So far we've tried Anise cookies, raspberries, chocolate croissants, olives and today we added sweet potato fries to the list.
What do sweet potatoes look, feel, taste and smell like? Where do they grow? And how did they get so soft when they're in the shape of fries?
When one of the children tries a new food in the classroom they add their symbol to our "Tasting new foods" board in the studio.

How do they make the dragon? - Hugh
I see the lions are made out of water color and fur. - Hugh
Hugh's idea inspired us to design our own dragon costumes with watercolors, fabric and loose parts.
Designing is like making a plan, an idea, or "like construction" (Jade).
I make a lion that I can stick to my costume. Let's wait until it's dry and then I add it to my costume. - Daniel
Work in progress:
This is Bea, explaining her design, her process and use of materials during our morning meeting:
During the design process Hugh had expressed concerns about the usability of these costume designs.
"But I'm not gonna fit in it. It's too small." (Hugh)
Jade explained to us how many people will be able to fit into her costume and how she can achieve the desired outcome (by creating holes for people to enter her costume):
We're excited to see where this process will take us...
