Last week, the entire school celebrated the "100th day of school". As a graded project, my son Andrew was instructed to come up with his own idea of representing the number 100 to his class. I gave him a framed stretched canvas and he began searching the house and hunting drawers/corners for all those plastic toy pieces that usually infest any house with young children. You know, those toys that come in birthday goodie bags, from the pizza place when you redeem your arcade tickets, etc. Yeah, I'm glad he found a use for them because I was about to throw most of these things away!
We had fun putting this project together. Besides helping him with the hot glue gun from time to time, he found the objects and placed them on the canvas. I was proud of his accomplishment and I could tell that he was excited to present it to his class.
