rule #1 of craft thursday (from here on out) for mama….
be in a good mood when we start.
it doesn't work well to start a craft with kids if i am not mentally ready.
but we pushed through my mood and we did it.
hopefully they will want to make crafts with me again someday…..
i chose a painting project from Pink and Green Mama's site.
she taught it to first graders….Georgia O'Keeffe inspired flower paintings.
first we looked at pictures of her paintings to notice the details.
then i gave a pencil to draw their flower having the petals touch all four sides of the paper.
then a sharpie to go over the pencil.
he drew a cactus, didn't like how it turned out…threw it away and went to swim in the pool.
the girls finished.
they loved it.
both so proud of their work.
i felt more relaxed than i did all day when i was painting mine.
annie's rainbow flower.
my purple cone flower.
so that is it.
one down….ten more to go!!!
