This is her sister, Ellie. She is the total opposite. I needed a dropcloth under her chair!! I love it!
And this is Jessi's girl, Kaitlyn. I have been wanting to get my hands on this little creative child for a while!! She does projects with Jessi all the time, so she kind of has a head start!
And here's Roane. She also has some artistic genes. Her mom did the finishing touch painting in my house. Roane even dappled on some dots and said, "this is like my mom faux finishes". Hilarious!
I really loved how totally different everyone's paintings were. They did not look at others' to figure out what they wanted!! They had very definite ideas on what color they would be doing their backgrounds.
If I'm not mistaken, that's because their RIGHT brains are active!!
This is Karissa. She is her mother's child!! I guess that is a ridiculous thing to say. Of course she is. But, actually, her mama is Becky, who is a PT at my office, and is highly organized and methodical in her life. Even Becky asked me after the first day, "So, did she try to boss everyone around?". Ha. No, she didn't, Becky! She slid right into her pupil role perfectly.
This is Clara. Her mom also works at MMPT. From our discussions, she is who Ellie is becoming. DRAMA!! Loves to dress up. Loves to put on impromptu concerts. Loves bling. Help me, Rhonda!
Kaitlyn really is in her element in this artroom!! She is another who takes her art projects pretty seriously!!
And this is Lydia. Her mom works at MMPT too. Once I mentioned it, the news spread like wildfire up there at work. I think there are 5 in this class! Kind of cool though, cause there is some serious carpooling going on!
And Emily's mom is an OT at my office. I love it that she says Emily has said DAILY since last Monday, "I can't wait til next Monday!". Very cool!
Little worker bees!
And I don't know what it was about this class, but we had time to spare. So... we got to work on our inspiration journals.
I taught the girls to decoupage papers on their notebooks to customize them. They were also free to grab anything out of my Free For ALL bucket to add to their books.
This included sticker letters, cool masking tapes, scrapbook papers, ....
Here they are posing with their books. I'd say zebra print is hot amongst this age group!
Even little Ellie (the youngest kid in any of the classes) had her eye on the zebra!
And here they are with their pumpkins. Wanna hear something funny!?
The next day at work I saw a couple of pumpkins being displayed!! There were some seroiusly proud moms!
