Getting crafty

As I mentioned before on the Blue Rose Girls blog here, I've been working on a proposal for a sequel to my soon to be released book, What Can You Do with an Old Red Shoe? A Green Activity Book About Reuse. So I've gone back to my teacherly roots and pulled out my craft supply bin...

Before I can turn a craft into a spread in the book I of course need to test it out. This week I did some bubble painting with a kazoo. These are the days that I think I have the best job ever. And perhaps the wierdest. Here are some pics.

Mixing the paint with dishsoap and water:



Place kazoo in soapy paint and blow bubbles:





Print bubbles onto paper:



So much fun.

looks F-U-N but what's a kazoo?

A kazoo is a little instrument you hum into. I'll show you sometime, I have a big pile of them now : )
