Recently, I've been productively using and getting addicted to Pinterest. Considering I didn't even understand the reason why one would want to have a Pinterest account at first, I turned 360 on the issue. I now have my lifelong craft plan cut out and I just fulfilled one ambition from the list.
I stumbled upon sharpie projects on porcelain. "Just draw on the plate/mug/vase with a sharpie marker, stick it in the oven at 350 F for 30 minutes and it will be done" were the instructions on most sites. Among many talents I seem to have, drawing is not one of them though, hence I like handprints, fingerprints and any other form of art where I do not actually have to use a brush. The idea was born! Fingerprints on a mug for the last day of school from the entire class!
We made three mugs - red, purple and a green one for the three wonderful teachers: Beth, Daisy and Nicole.
Besides the fact that they are just wonderful, any teacher who sends out this note below deserves a caterpillar mug :))))
Just a quick note. If the children mention a flood or water in the classroom, this morning (Monday) water came into the classroom from the street. The children did not get wet and we quickly got it under control. We pretended we were on a submarine and a boat. We ate our snack on the dry rug pretending it was a picnic.
The children in the class loved the idea of a "secret" project .. although I am not sure how long it took for someone to make it "not so secret" :)))
And here is me playing still life photographer ...
It was so much fun making the mugs.
This could also be a great father's/mother's day gift.
Night night, Lo(lo)V(i)e from us all,
