I have a love/hate relationship with holidays.
I LOVE them, truly – I love the family time and the fun and the extra sleep-in days :) but I don’t love the buying of stuff and the goody bags of candy from my daughters classmates (for easter. really??) and the idea that we have to create huge events surrounding these holidays instead of simply enjoying the time together.
This all gets more complicated when I throw in that I’m an elementary school art teacher… I basically craft for a living!
I was thinking about a project that I could do with 9 & 10-year-olds that could be simplified to also do with my 5-year-old over the long weekend. This is what I came up with.
