children's papier mache class

We're back from the mountains - greeting the city in the grips of a heatwave. 103 degrees feels very different bouncing off asphalt. My garden is hanging in there and the chickens are panting and digging deep into the dirt to keep cool.

My first children's papier mache class was moved indoors today due to the heat. We did venture outside for a little bit to visit the chickens as we toured the menagerie looking for inspiration. We also visited the finches, the turtles, the cat, and the dog. Frida Paloma(the chihuahua) stole the spot light and everyone ended up making dogs.

These pictures are from step one. Tomorrow we detail, reinforce, and paint.

I love how different each dog's personality is - we even have a flying dog! More pictures tomorrow.


  1. Yes, Frida stole the show. Malayna can't stop talking about her. Can't wait to see these finished!

  2. ahh. this is so great! I can't wait to see what happens next!
