This week we gathered around clay balls in descending sizes. We were thinking of our meatball makers as we prepped the clay for playgroup.
In the studio, we painted with salt and water, made marks with oil pastels on a large piece of paper, wrapped a stick (and ourselves) with ribbons, and explored large blocks of ice and pipettes. Our bedroom was transformed into a kitchen, and there was a lot of cooking, serving and peek-a-boo play in the fridge. It was a nice area for our young friends to explore sharing, negotiating and taking turns.
In the message center we collaged cut up film and punched paper on transparent page protectors. At the end of our time together, we shared everyone's design on the projector as well as some projected nursery rhymes.
