We made stamps from foam core and sticky foam, and used them with paints and markers to decorate totebags and scarves. I also brought along stencils and other stamps that they could play with.
On the lower right of the picture above, you can see a few of the stamps that they made.
This is some of their things drying, before they went back and added more layers of color. We worked with a motto of "more is better"!
I was glad the older girls were there, because the two youngest may have been a little too young for the entire project. The older girls were able to buddy up with the younger ones, and ease the process along.
And, they were a huge help in the clean-up. We tried to be careful, but with such enthusiatic work going on, it was inevitable that some paint went astray. We had to scrub chairs, the floor, and the bathroom before the next class was due to start (one hour later). We just managed it. I can't wait to do it again!
