This week in Kids Workshop, we gathered around sorting a table full of donations. We placed items in categories: paper, toys, bottle caps and more!
In small groups, we printed our blocks that we made last week. We followed a printing process of getting our paper ready, inking, and printing. One challenge was to keep our printing space and fingers clean, so unwanted smudges would not appear on our work. It was a busy session and we think it's safe to say that many will not need to buy Valentine's Day cards this year!
In our other small group, we tested our hand-eye coordination by hammering bottle caps in a log. After a little practice, we moved to making a bottle cap snake. We noticed that certain hammers worked better for this activity, as the weight of the head made a difference in how many whacks we had to make to punch a hole in the cap.
