Fingerprint Platters5:43 AM
In case you don't already know...
my other job
(the one that pays money)
is a teacher.
This week I helped out in the Pre-Nursery at our school.
(yes I said Pre-Nursery...2 1/2 year olds!)
We worked on a platter that would be
donated for our school fund raiser...
We used the kid's thumbprints to create
butterflies and bees on a bisque platter.
The platter would then be sent back to the clay store
to be glazed and fired...
The very fun part was painting all those thumbs!
If you know anything about 2 1/2 year old children,
you'll know... they don't always cooperate....
Needless to say, not all thumbprints ended up on the platter...
and some kids had a very hard time sticking out just their thumbs...
But in the end we did have 3 adorable platters.
It was a fun project and
I'm looking forward to seeing the finished products!
