We were making (err- attempting) tissue paper art where first you draw a shape, then cut little squares out of tissue paper. Place the middle of the tissue paper square over the eraser-end of a pencil. Crinkle tissue paper, dip in glue, then place onto your shape.
Elisha's strong-willed personality came out in full force. "I don't want to- it won't do what I want it to, so I'm doing this." His picture turned out beautifully and is now decorating Daddy's book for work.Elizabeth's free-flowing form showed abundantly when she decided tissue-paper flowers needed to decorate her entire page, not just her shape. Jacob just plain didn't get the hang of it, but he had a blast-- he decided he didn't want to show it in this picture. Or he was mad that Mom finally cut off his 1/2 bottle glue supply.
And Lydia's pretty, frilly, girly style was perfectly displayed in her work-of-art butterfly. But, Mom forgot to take a picture of her holding it. Sorry Lydia.
All those personalities sure make life interesting around here!
PS-- Daddy fixed the tent-- yay!
