Happy third day of spring!
We are starting to see slight signs of spring in our neck of the woods.
One minute the yard will be covered in snow and a few hours later it's gone again . . .
Now that we've lived here 7 years, I know not to truly expect the warmth and thaw of spring until May or in some years June.
But the girls and I are starting to work on making it look a bit more like spring on the inside.
Yesterday we created a few flower masterpieces by doing an oil pastel resist.
We first did a bit of reading.
Then I decided that we needed REAL flowers to inspire us
("Yes honey, I needed to buy the bouquet for school")
So we looked at our pretty flowers and drew away.
Then we did a simple wash with watercolors and were delighted with the way the pastels resisted the water.
Very fun and bright!
Just what our classroom needed.
And then they just got goofy.
Including the teacher
It's super fun to play with pastels.
And just to add a bit more spring into our day, we made 'nests'.
I shared these last year.
I made them with my mom when I was a kid and now I love making them with my girls.
It's the Rice Krispy recipe- but just use noodles instead of the cereal.
I'm off to have a nest for breakfast!
Hope you have a delightful weekend!
