Randomly assigning no letters this week, The Kept Woman is attempting to get sun out of a bottle.
While Will is in school, Livi and I go to an arts and crafts class called Ooyey Gooyey art. They do all the kinds of stuff you (meaning me) don't let your kid do at home.
This project included modpodge and glitter. Check, check, those two things are not in my home. With as many little crafty things that we do, I don't do glitter or I will be doing glitter for a week. Even my super duper purple vacuum cleaner doesn't like glitter.

These flowers are made with coffee filters and markers. Once she colored on the filters, we sprinkled them ever so lightly with water causing the marker color to run. The pot is one huge sticky mess with various tissue papers modpodged to it. Of course the majority of them were various shades of 'purpur'.

When she was finished she was so proud to take it home. She told her daddy she made him flowers, so I guess they will soon be going in the next box we send him.

Happy Wednesday, did you play?

What a terrific name for an art class! Her flowers look cute. Sweet Boy LOVES doing projects with coffee filters, markers, and a spray bottle.

I'll let him use glitter glue at our Art Table, but the loose shaky kind has to be used outside. It drives me crazy when they send stuff home from school with loose glitter falling off, all over the bottom of the backpack, all over my kitchen, etc.

OMG....that is such a sweet post! Oh how I remember those glitter days. I also used a spray bottle with water for those coffee filter flowers. Those look great.

Awww that is so sweet and I love the name of the class too. I wish I had something like this to take Maddie too because i'm way too OCD to even let her fingerpaint. I can barely tolerate crayons.

I'll bet daddy will love that in his next care package!!!

Glitter? In the house? I don't think so.

Love it! Mod podge?! I don't even let play dough in the house. I'm a mean mommy. And thanks for posting the packing list...awesome!

It's great that you can do that somewhere other than your house. :)
Cute pics!

Ive found that carefully watched glitter glue is a nice solution to pouring out piles of that crap everywhere.

Heather said...

Adorable! So sweet that she made them for daddy!

Beth said...

How mean...NO glitter in your house...evil woman. Not that I blame you one bit.

I played...though its not quiet as festive as yours!

Head Hen said...

Too cool! What a good class concept. File that under "I wish I'd thought of that"!
