1. Sand painting project
Actually, we only have blue-colored sand. To come up with the other colors, we took some sand and mixed it with a drop or two of food coloring. Adding red to blue gave the brown sand and adding yellow to blue gave the green sand. We did this so as to economize.
2. Drawing with Color PensThese drawings were made by my daughter, Kristel. She said that Faber Castell went to their school, had a short film showing and taught them three drawing techniques — patterning, contouring and pointilism.
3. Scrapbook Cover DesignLast month, my girls were asked to make scrapbook or journals. This is what Janel did with her scrapbook cover.

- She cut a colored folder crosswise.
- Then, she cut one recycled paper they made last Christmas vacation (I haven’t blogged about this fun recycled paper craft … next time I will) into a rectangular shape and glued it on the center.
- Then, she stuck the Bible verse sticker she received as a Christmas gift from her little sister.
- Lastly, she cut out a piece of orange paper and used the letter rubber stamp I bought from Blue Magic to stamp “My Booklet of God’s Promises.”
4. Angel’s Doodles / Simple IllustrationsThese are Angel’s doodles. She is 6 years old and is so sweet. She makes me notes like the first two drawings every now and then. The other two drawings are snapshots of what she drew on her test paper. One is her illustration of how kids can show respect and the other is an illustration of honesty. I was so amused to see these when she took home her test paper from school.
That's all for this post.
