Blue & Green.
This week is planting week. We have been wanting to start some window herbs and the quiet of January is a good time. A was excited to see the books arrive from the library -- is it time? Yes! So this week we have plans to paint pots, plant seeds, read books about growing seeds, grow sprouts, and do a few other fun things.
Today was painting day. They each painted 2 pot/saucer sets. We used smaller ceramic pots which will hold a small herb plant each. They each also painted 1 small ceramic watering can. We used terra cotta/ceramic paint. The colors they chose were pretty bold!
We did the base layer today, and plan to coat them with a gold opalescent layer after the boys add a cool embellishment they selected. More tomorrow!
