These morning, my kids woke up early and were so eager to attend their summer class because they said that today was their Art Day. That’s why for their assignment, their teachers asked them to bring flour, food coloring and apron. My kids thought that they are going to cook. My son even told me that he will cook for me so when I got home from the office he will let me taste it (ain’t that sweet?).
Well, it turned out, as I talked to my mom over the cellphone (thanks to Globe’s IMMORTAL CALL), they did not cook! So what did they do to the flour and food color? They made clay out of it! I dunno about you but I just learned today that clay can be made is actually made of that raw materials.
That’s one fun thing to do at school for toddlers like them. Toddlers and preschoolers love doing arts and crafts! Most like working with clay, coloring, and painting. You will be amazed at how much they can do once you start introducing them to various craft items. The best judge as to whether your child can handle these crafts or not is you. Your goal is to have them enjoy themselves without getting frustrated.
My son,Ciren, molded a heart and gave it to me the minute I arrived home. My daughter, Erin girl, said she can’t make a heart but made a circle round molds instead. Basically, that’s the highlight of their day at school and tomorrow is their rest day. They have no class during Fridays but only for their summer class.
As of this time, they are all sound asleep as I look for those clays that they had been playing along a while ago. Can’t find it neither in their bag nor anywhere else but when I opened the fridge to get water guess what I saw:
The clays were inside the fridge! waa! KIDS!
( I wonder if their teacher instructed them about leaving clays in a cool place or their just playing naughty..hmm.. whatcha think? )
