We had some Making last week that I wanted to share. We found out, kind of last minute, that we were going to see some of our favorite people over the weekend! So of course we had to make something to share with them.
Eliza first made this sweetest of little fairies, and I fell in love. Deep love. She took pity on me, and now this fairy lives on my dresser, where I can see her from my bed. You're never too old for toys, right?
Ani, meanwhile, made this adorable little chick. I helped her think about how to make a ball out of the wool, and assisted with a triangle for the beak, but the rest was hers! I love its little fuzzy self. She played with it all morning before deciding that she could give it up.
Another day we got out our photosensitive paper and played around with shadows and exposure.
My favorite creation of the week, though, was this painting Eliza made for Dan for Father's Day. It is a crow's head, as seen from above, and she wrote a riddle to go with it:
I am coal black and as light as a feather
I soar through the sky, not attached to any tether.
What am I?
