Ever been frustrated enough to "kill" your project? Then you've contemplated SEWICIDE.

Letters and tape and paint, oh my!


So it seems all my best and messiest projects begin with a muffin tin full of paints.  We were generously given some amazing homeschool activities from a recent friend (whom I'd like to adopt as my honorary grammy for lots more reasons) and I decided to try the painting letters one.  It was our Science/Reading day, so this tied in nicely.

I got out my never-ending stack of paper plates and some masking tape.  I drew the letters on the plates and showed the fairies how to cover them with tape.   I cut up some old sponges for the smearing/stamping/free-for-all and let them have at it.
 All three had a fantastic time smooshing the sponges in the paint, but Secunda was TRANSFIXED.  She's very sensory without the (occasionally) concomitant behaviour issues.


So we spent the morning stamping away...  And had a great time.  Plus LEARNING.  Thanks, faeries!
