Remember looong ago when I made the base for the paper mache bugs. Well, it was for the twins’ Kindergarten project and really, the project was to “show off” the
parent’s, er I mean student’s artistic skills/creativity during open house Although I made the base of the insects (out of foil and masking tape), the kids did all the paper mache and painting. And we did not buy one thing! Both insects were made using items found in the home. Here’s my daughter’s butterfly.
And here is son’s stag beetle.
So proud of their work! and here’s some pictures from their open house.
End of the school year seems to be much busier than the beginning of the school year. PTA dinner, volunteer luncheon, collecting for end of the school year presents for the teachers, all while still managing my household. Hope you all are surviving the week! I’m off to run errands with the baby.
The twins are learning about insects and their home project is to create a 3-dimensional insect using materials found in the home. I immediately thought of sewing something (the instructions did state that parents should help) but then lil sis suggested paper mâché. After spending a good few hours researching how to make paper mâché, paper mache pulp, paper mâché paste, how to create a base/form, I’m hoping that I’ve created something my daughter can mâché without it falling apart!
Now on to making son’s stag beetle!
