Darn that Hurt!




I burned my finger today! And no not from the heat of my birthday candles, although, if I had had a birthday cake, then the fire department probably would have had to be on standby. I burned my finger on glue from a "low heat" hot glue gun. (I'd hate to feel how hot the glue was coming out of a "High Heat" glue gun.) I have a neat little blister right on the tip of my finger. OUCH! But I did make some interesting little boxes.



I was trying to come up with an art project to do with 50 1st graders for a Valentine's Day art project, but I have decided that this is not the one. Not only is it too time consuming to do in 30 minutes, but dangerous. So, if any of you crafty people out there have any cute, simple ideas for an art project for 6 and 7 year old that can be completed within 30 minutes without a lot of adult supervision, send me a comment. I could use all the help I can get.

by way of cher...haha, inner voices, you crack me up

i say 1rst graders may as well learn something useful like sniffing glue or huffing gas. oh wait...you said art. hmmm. well, i'll think about it.

i loved grating up crayons between wax paper and melting it with an iron and then cutting out shapes. i actually feel like doing that now.

Hi Cecile,
I see by the clock on the wall that it is 9:15pm, Tuesday in Arkansas.
I remembered that today was your day off and that you had to take Nathan to the dentist.
I hope that everything went okay and that you were able to find some time in your busy day for a break.
Kind thoughts,
Mark.
