Crafty Kids

After devouring their cupcakes, our crew "moo"ved on to cow themed activities.  First, construction paper cow heads using one of our favorite things: glue sticks!
Stella's was kind of an art-deco cow...

Next, the kids painted brown spots onto their paper plate cow bodies while I regaled/bored them with fun facts about cows having multiple stomachs and chewing their cud...

I'm not sure if Stella is making this face out of frustration at having to share the paint or because of my lame retelling of the golden calf Bible story...

Molly has an unfair advantage since her dad is an art teacher.  Check out that technique...

My little Picasso in action...

I think these original pieces should soon be up for auction.  Where should we start the bidding?

I love how there's not really a big difference between the plate they're scooping paint off of and the ones that they are actually painting...

Look!  They're sharing! 

Our final cow-themed activity of the day was teaching the kids how to "milk" a rubber glove full of water into a mop bucket. As you can imagine, their sharing skills became even more important during that exercise. Thanks, Emily and Cohen, for letting us share an "udderly" amazing day with you!
