|Slime is so much fun! We used Elmer's glue, liquid starch and liquid water colors.|
|This project takes a few days and has steps. The egg on the left was soaked in water and food coloring.|
The egg on the right was soaked in corn syrup and food coloring.
We learned about Cubism and made portraits. We learned about Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso, the two artists who founded the Cubism period of art. Grandma then taught us how to make a portrait, explaining the proportions of the face. We then colored the face in with lots of colors. Lastly, we cut up the pictures and pasted them down in unique ways. The kids really enjoyed this project. I think this has been one of their favorite art projects this year.

History ~ We watched a documentary, The History of Halloween (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-u9mWboWGbA), on Halloween. It is a five part series.
Field Trips ~ We attended our local homeschool Halloween party. The kids loved playing musical chairs. They played it over and over again, even though they were allowed to win only one prize. There were lots of craft tables, organic pizza, and donuts on a string. Some of the costumes were very creative.

Little Red Riding Hood decided to be a pirate because it was a warmer outfit than her witch costume.
