The art room has turned into Santa's Workshop or Mrs.Haney's Sweat shop as my students have been calling it. Lol.. We have been working hard all week on making no sew blanks. The calss as a whole has completed 12 blankets! Therefore they decided today that the room was a sweat shop both because of the heat and as a pun. Here are some photos of the blankets and the kids working.
Last night was a blast as well. Timothy decided we would put the tree up and he would make christmas ornaments. So we put the tree up and he helped me decorate it with all the handmade ornament he can find and then the very expensive ones that I almost lost it when he got them out. But, I managed to hold it together and let him put them on the tree! Next came the gingerbread men. We had glue everywhere!And last but not least the gumdrop tree. Which was the highlight of the evening. Timothy loved tasting all the flavors of gumdrops and dared anyone to pull them of f the tree. Emily was doing chemistry and did not help with the fun. We will have to find something for her to do to decorate the house this weekend.
