well, why haven’t we done THIS before?!?!?
what a hit. when paper is crumpled and then flattened and then painted on with coffee (freshly made or leftover), a wonderfully old looking piece of paper is created! it is a little more impressive when an actual coffee cup is used and even more impressive yet when the coffee is still hot and even MORE impressive yet when your teachers are drinking out of matching coffee cups!
the next day the papers were dry and ready to draw on.
it was also nice to have a “compass rose artist” in the room one day.
later in the week we added pre-drawn treasure maps from on line to crumple and paint.
hanging them to dry with fans was helpful.
stay tuned to see if those maps helped us find our treasure! AAAAARGH!!!
