Mini Beasts- The sequel.....

I spent a lesson yesterday and one today with my second primary mini beast group and I think they turned out very well. We tried some caterpillars this time too just to see how they turned out. What do you think?.....
I love felt anyway, but it is a really good medium for youngsters for making things such as these bugs. They really enjoyed making them and were so keen to take them home. Perfect!!

There were six in the group and we also asked them to have a go at drawing either the bug they made or one from their imagination. These are so cute.....

Only small children can draw like this, it can not be truly copied by an adult. It has been a lot of fun the past couple of weeks and I shall be going back with a different year group next term. I am waiting for a project list from the school so I can link textiles ideas with the work that the youngsters will be doing, but if not then something Christmasy will be in order.

Who else was woken up at 4.30am by the blasted rain this morning? Just me? Gave up at 5.30am and made a cup of tea then just snoozed until 6.15am. So a little bleary eyed, but school breaks up tomorrow and I have to say that I am on my knees and it can not come soon enough. The fact that I am going into school on Thursday and Friday to sort out a work space, displays etc is neither here nor there is it? But I have been promised egg and chips Thursday night cooked for me by my in-laws as a reward so it could just be worth it!!

Must dash and get some beauty sleep.

Fabulous bugs, I'm curious (as an art teacher in a primary setting) how old were the kids and did they sew around the outside of the bugs or did they do the gluing of the decorations and have some help with the sewing? I have a group of 10 and 11 year olds who can't manage that just yet!!!! Too much 'play station' not enough of working their hands in other ways.
