And that's what our art project was this week with my nephews.
|bowl of newspaper strips. Check.|
|A bowl each of paper mache' for each kid. Check. GREAT recipe for it HERE.|
|A newspaper filled, plastic bag pumpkin for Ben to cover. Check.|
|And a white one for Peter to cover. Check.|
|Here was my sample to show them. It had only half-dried by class time.|
|And here are my adorable nephews up to their elbows in mache'. Actually, they were quite "clean" with it, but I had covered the table and the floor just in case. To encourage untimate creativity, I believe you need permission to make a mess : )!|
|And here are how the boy's mache'd pumpkins turned out! Pretty good! Next time they will get to paint them!|
Great job, boys! I LOVE having you over for Art/Craft time!!!
