Little Hands, Big Hearts
A few times a year I head north to the Tacoma area to lead an art activity in my daughter Melissa's elementary classroom. Last year she taught third graders, but this year she is teaching second graders -- oh my, what a difference a year makes! I chose a simple activity -- painting and embellishing smooth river rocks. My grandkids, Luke and Ella, attend the same school where Melissa teaches, so they enthusiastically helped me get things set up.
The morning was a blur of paint, glue, and sparkly things. The best quote of the day? When one little boy yelled out: We have glittery eyes and poofy balls! We had lots of both!
Time for our gallery walk!
The kids are already excited about the next time I come.
