Sock Monkey's

First of all, none of my students had ever heard of a sock monkey. They have been asking me all week "Can we decorate our "monkey socks?!" They were very excited to decorate after the painting part. Next time I do this project, it will be with older kids. The kinder and 1st's who did these were a little overwhelmed with all the decorating materials and I had to make all those little pom poms myself because they don't know how to tie a knot yet! Got the idea from Deep Space Sparkle

I bought some pink tule and the girls went crazy making tutu's

"Yes, I am graduating in a crop top tank top and a tie...don't judge me!"

Mural for my Daughter

I have been working on a mural for my daughter for her “big girl room” so I can move the baby into the nursery. I am so excited that it is ALMOST done and I cannot wait to move her new furniture in there. copy

Below is a picture of the nursery mural that I did last year which will now be for Shelby Grace!! She is already three months old!!

As you can see I had LOTS of help!!

Pet Oyster

I don't think anything is wrong with a little extrinsic motivation every now and then...
Photobucket help 30 kindergarteners clean up their tables without losing my voice and pulling paint brushes out of little hands because they don't want to stop. I made 50 of these little "pet oysters"
We go to the beach alot and I didn't know what to do with all these shells my daughter and I picked up. Now I have 600 kids asking for a pet oyster every time they come in my room!

I love how I can make someone's day with something that some people consider trash!
