Today for Making Day, we made gardens. I gave the kids each a piece of "dirt" (a piece of brown construction paper) along with scissors and glue, and I let them attack my enormous stack of seed catalogs.
They loved it.
I talked to them about collages and showed them some of the collages I made in college. (College! Collage! College! Collage!) Bean still wanted to "plant" his garden in neat rows, but Fish really liked the collage idea.
Roo was just happy to have scissors and glue and a book full of pretty flowers.
