Mom n Me weekends are always fun and eye-opening. Kids just have such a different view on crafting. I taught two sessions of my Kids Kards Class and had 11 kids in each class, ages varying from 8-14. They dived in without any hesitation...distress you say? OK! Use a souffle pen? OK! mask and ink? OK! Musical cards? YES Please! What is musical cards...6 different cards and 11 kids meant I had to get creative with how I taught the class. There wasn't enough for everyone to work on the same card at the same time. So I set up stations, walked them through it at the beginning of class. There was also a time limit...soooo...I put on some music, told them to work in pairs one station at a time and when the song ended, they moved to the next one.There was singing and bopping...so much fun. I should do this with adults too ;)
The other thing I noticed why how they just rolled with it...on this card, they had to cut out the bee with scissors and 2 girls told me they cut off the antennas by mistake. And before I could say anything, they piped up to say, "It's not a big deal, we stuck it on and drew the antennas back on!" Amazing and so creative! Nothing threw them off...smudge? Just color over it with a darker color. Crooked? I like it like that.
