This week's theme is Stone.
Be sure to link here if you join in
and even if you don't, check out some of the
other projects over at Unplug Your Kids.
Princess and I have been saving a basket of rocks
for a project or two, but they went mysteriously
missing over the weekend during a cleaning
mission of Farmer Dad's. He claims he never saw them,
and since I have no video evidence of any kind, I will
drop it. He does have a habit of "mucking about" with
our school area however, so I doubt his story is accurate.
We do have a lot of rocks and stones here, so we proceeded
with out project. First we brought out Princess's "pink beach stone"
collection for her to sort, count and admire. Then we found more stones
and melted some crayon pieces to decorate them with (we came across
a finished piece from a previous go at the "hot rock" project and P decided she wanted
to do it again. We put the crayon pieces in a mini muffin tin and melted them in the oven.
Then she used some old paintbrushes to "paint" her rocks with the melted crayon.
Here are some finished pieces. The sunrise/sunset and the mountain are my faves.
Princess prefers the flower designs.
I hope you all have fun and come back tomorrow for my Tuesday book post.
