This year I moved Art to Friday figuring it would be a nice way to end the week. Last week the boys did "remembrance collages". They were supposed to think of a person and make a collage of pictures that remind them of that person. They kept changing their mind about the person, and eventually just ended up cutting out pictures that they liked. You can't dictate art, right?
Today we did "crayon muffins". This involves melting down crayon pieces (which we had plenty of) and pouring the wax into muffin tins to make big crayons. The best part of this project is how long the boys were occupied ripping the paper off the bits of crayons and sorting them by colors. A great way to use all those broken crayons.
