Summer School Art Kid's Edition:: Jesus Window Poster
Friday, June 19, 2009
In Adventures In My Father's World, our main curriculum for Belle, we are studying the names of God. This week we are celebrating the name that means The Lord Saves: JESUS!
Such a simple, but fun way to spend these days when it's too hot to play outside for very long.
I had Belle draw and cut out the letters, and peel the crayon wrappers...she has a real talent for peeling crayons and garlic. Bless her.
I used my vegetable peeler to shave the crayons, which was so beautiful that it felt theraputic despite that fact that I could hear the boys getting into bathroom trouble. I just loved the colors and the shapes the shavings were making...maybe I need to get out more...see some sunsets or something...
We then ironed the letters and shavings between two pieces of wax paper on a low heat.
What we learned:: Wax paper + low heat = cool stuff.
Remember making stenciled shirts with it? ahh, good times...still waiting for that phone call, by the way...Tuesday was the 6 month mark since we've been officially waiting...sigh...
