Ancient statues ..

Today we learned about statues of Achient Greece and Cyprus, we looked at photos online and talked about the meterials they used ,how they made clay and how they were found..
We got  our clay out and made our own little statues , it was fun to see how the little Doolittle made he's and paid close attention to the details.. He really enjoyed this project and the statues turned out so nice I will put them on display as soon as they dry..
We used different materials and tools to make patters and markings on out projects.  

We used toothpicks and forks to make patterns
Making plaques using tooth picks to make patterns

Nature exploring and painting...

It was a lovely sunny day today and the kids were home sick from school, so I took the opportunity to go out and do some nature exploring ..I packed some glue, paints ,water and brushes and gave the kids a basket each and out the door we were.. We collected some flowers ,sticks, stones and snail shells  to make a nature painting..
Kids love to explore and look at the different bugs that are out now , the different wild flowers that are growing in the fields now..
We collected all we needed and set up on the ground in the park to make our project.. It was a fun morning ,we talked about all the different bugs and flowers we met and then they had a little play..

Lovely daisy and ladybug...
