How to Make Fingerprint Platters with Children

In case you don't already know, my other job 
(the one that pays money)
is a teacher.

Sometimes I am asked to help out with a project in another class.

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 createbutterflies 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 that 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!
