A cute story about a woman who takes in a lot of kids and how they live, and what it was like for them to live through a twister, and what happened to their house.
Now for the project.
First, make spaghetti for lunch. At some point I will write down a recipe for this, but sufficive to say the recipe involves lots of oregano, basil, and garlic. And it’s yummy. If I could I would eat it 5 times a week. Jeff objects to that, so I don’t.
Save some of those noodles for your art.
Next have them draw a picture of some sort. I chose to have them draw a picture of a family on a walk.
After they’ve completed this give them a spaghetti noodle and some black paint. They’re going to drag the noodle all over the picture to make a twister.
Here’s their finished results. It wasn’t the spectacularly amazing picture I was thinking it would be. I saw another blog post recently where they did it and theirs turned out much better.
Here’s what I think I did wrong:
1. I didn’t provide enough paint.
2. I think they watered their paint down a little.
I’m not sure. Anyone else done something like this? What worked for you?
Now to go solve a fighting problem for some rather tired kiddos.
