Fundraising for Mundo Lindo

ml in the gift shop
Mundo Lindo is sponsored by California Center for the Arts, Escondido (CCAE), but it is a grant-based and donation based program. Every year, Tomoko Kuto, director of the Education Department at CCAE writes grants for Mundo Lindo. And the kids try and help too. The monster dolls, created and sewn by the kids are for sale in the CCAE Museum gift shop. All the money from the sales, goes to support Mundo Lindo.

Our last day of Mundo Lindo for the school year, and so busy it will take two posts!
Above are some of the girls in their smashing tie dye t-shirts, that we made last week pictured at our quick visit to California Center for the Arts Museum.
Since it was our last day, we had snacks. The kids and staff brought pizza, cookies, berries, whipped cream, cheese and crackers macaroni salad, brownies, fruit...and more!

Then we used weldbond glue, and mosiac bits and created decorated horseshoes.

Mundo Lindo's GREAT friend Jill Hall, gave us some horseshoes from her ranch, and we used her creative way to decorate them. Before the glue dries, sprinkle with tiny seed beads or glitter!

And while the decorated horseshoes dried, we play horseshoes outside.
