Two weeks ago, the TV studio had a little visit from our neighbors around the block. Three young lads from the McCarton School made an appearance for a short tour of Martha's TV studio and then stopped by the art department to do some crafting.
After some refreshing lemon water, I set Sammy, Peter, and Sebastian up to glitter. Since this was their first visit to Martha and they are only 4 years old, I didn't want to overwhelm them with a complex craft project. I supplied them with a selection of flat wooden shapes, a glittering tray, a variety of glitter, white glue, and a paintbrush. They each chose the shapes and glitter colors they wanted to use, painted the white glue on their shapes, and glittered them.
When the kids were finished, having glittered a few shapes each, and were ready for lunch, I walked them out and they left their craft projects behind to dry. The next day I turned their glittered shapes into little ornaments for them to take home and hang anywhere.
I packed up their ornaments, and the teachers walked them by to pick them up. They were very excited and made me the sweetest thank you card for their visit! I would do it again in a heartbeat!
