We started Wednesday's Prep Scout fun with the creation of old-fashioned friendship bracelets, which the students weaved for themselves and one another. The bracelets are fun and pretty quick gratification for our efforts. Once we started them, the students sat outside and worked on the bracelets while we prepared our other crafts and activities in smaller groups.
Wednesday’s second craft was the creation of marbleized paper, a craft I learned about on Cup of Jo. We followed the procedures as instructed and then set out our cards to dry. They turned out very well and the students are excited to make more of them today.
Later on this week, we’ll write hand-written notes on our cards. We’ll put those in the mail before Adventure Week ends on Friday. We wrapped up our day by hand churning cream to make butter, which we slathered on saltine crackers and enjoyed very much. Today will feature a new set of Prep Scout adventures. That’s happy!
