We did tie-dye t-shirts. Here's the Thursday class of 21 kids!!! Thank goodness, I had some extra volunteer help! BIG thanks to Virginia, Pamela, Evie and husb (sporting his tie-dye shirt that he made this summer.) Here are the kids tieing their shirts with rubber bands. I used the tie-dye kit and bought t-shirts from Dharma.

First the kids made a list of traits for their own superheroes. (Powers, human or animal, hair color, fave food etc.) Then they cut out fabric from a pattern and created their own super hero puppet.

What a day! The kids started out great, drawing in chalk pastel. But, with our Santa Ana very dry winds, and the carpet in this room, everytime I touched a kid, or they touched each other, static electricity and a shock! It got them all wound up and giggling...So, we spend some time at ECM, in the back garden, but the kids were wild today.

Before we got started on our art project, the kids spent a little time at the Escondido Children's Museum, next door to our studio.
After they cut out the pieces, they assembled them with brads--Paolo and Moises are concentrating.
