Messy Art Day

Today, the tribe had our first Messy Art Day and it was so much fun we're thinking about doing this 3 or 4 times a year!

We had tie-dyed t-shirts made with magic markers and rubbing alcohol, plaster of paris casts of hand and foot prints decorated with shells, marbles and bottle caps, modeling clay, a spin art machine, and a group effort to paint a bed sheet for a park day blanket. I didn't get pictures of everything, but I did get several of the sheet painting in progress. The kids had a blast!

add some more paint, and check out Forest's snazzy hat!

add some more paint, both spray and with brushes

add some more creativity

And here it is in all its glory

We had such an amazing time! I love our tribe, and our amazing unschooling, creativity-filled life!
