Social Studies?

Last month Chris invited the kids to decorate the floor of his shop with clay paint, which would stick to the earthen floor before it was oiled. I was walking outside the shop and I heard Chris say "wait for it, wait for it......" and then a "ppffttthhhh" sound. Then a lot of giggling. Turns out they were having a little anthropology lesson, using a prehistoric technique to leave hand prints on the floor and walls.

First a mouthful of (non-toxic, totally natural) clay paint:

Mix with water:

And blow!

The kids both gave it a try.

Just loved this, Jenny. What fun for the kids as well as a work of art and memories.

I hadn't checked your blog in a while so it was fun to see what you all have been up to. Hello for Broc, Gail, Brenna and Logan!
