Pulling Things Out of a Hat

While in the project room today, a few girls wanted to try something new. I had left over egg cartons and drink holders which I cut into pieces. Not sure what to do with them, we pulled out some scrap tissue paper, and got liquid starch out along with some paint brushes. So we began to decorate the pieces. Initially I felt like I needed a plan, but as the girls began to paint on the starch I realized a plan was not necessary, it was more about the process and not the product. I know that sounds like a child development cliche but it was true. This activity kept the girls occupied and content just picking out pieces and painting them on.
