Tomorrow the kindergartners will celebrate the 100th day of school.....EXCITING!! Kayden received an assignment to come up with 100 of the same "things" that could be put on poster board....anything BE CREATIVE was the key point!!

so we collaborated.....this artistic 6 year girl and a mother who desperately tries to keep up with her creative idea was BORN!!
today the idea was created!
we sat down on the living room floor and started tearing little pieces of magazine paper of various colors
we then started putting those colors together until we reached 100 pieces
glued them to a piece of cardboard and the MASTERPIECE was finished!!!
a flower.....looks a bit mosaic like i think!! aside from creativity we were proud of the fact that this was made from recycled materials.....nothing had to be purchased! can't beat that!
we may just be creating some other recycled magazine objects for an upcoming holiday!!

Congratulations young lady! And what a beautiful artwork to take to school!
And THANK YOU for giving me a great idea of what to do with the HUGE stack of magazines that I was about to throw away. I know just what MY 6 year old will be doing tomorrow!
