I almost forgot about this today after hearing some difficult news. It was about 5:30 when I hopped off the bed and said, “Shit! Our daily project!” I ran downstairs to get the supplies, did a test run, and called the kids in for their turn.
So today, we filled clear acrylic ornaments with paints and shook the hell out of’ em. After the day I’ve had, shaking those ornaments felt great! The kids picked their colors, I pointed them into the ornaments as they squeezed the bottles, I did the initial shake for good paint distribution, and I handed them over to the kids.
THEY LOVED THIS!!!!
This was a great test run because I’m planning to do this with 20 kids at Matthew’s school Christmas party. It will go great!
No pics today of them hanging them on the tree… They’re drying right now in an egg carton!
Oh, and…. I did not raise my voice even once!
