What we did when we got home

When we got home Nora and Stuey wanted to make stuff with the treasure they collected at the beach. Stuey made a cool bracelet out of the copper wire, a piece of brass and some sort of stainless steel spring (if you look closely you can see it at the right hand edge of the third photo down). Meanwhile Nora sorted all of her glass by color on a white plate. She tells me she learned to 'sort' at school. Then Nora suggested making glass mosaics using the beach glass to 'color' drawings I drew for them. So we did. I don't think we used the greatest glue, and I'm not sure what we will do with the finished products, but the kids seemed to have a good time anyway. Now there are lots of mosaics drying on all the counters around the kitchen. And there is still plenty of beach glass leftover! Also note that the top picture matches the bottom drawing - I made Nora a self portrait drawing to fill in. Patrick
