For history this year we are back around to Ancients. I love this time period. It is so much fun and has such cool project potential. Piper’s first project was to do a cave painting. Some of the options given for medium were a crumpled paper bag or a board with sand glued to it. We thought it might be more fun to do it on actual stone though, so Piper chose a large granite rock in the garden. I also offered charcoal and chalk pastels, but she looked on it as a challenge and ended up using all materials she found in the backyard including charcoal from the fire ring, bark, and a plant with some wonderful orange sap (maybe celandine). I’m sure the fact that the subject was horses isn’t any sort of surprise. She had a great time and I thought they looked very realistic. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what else she comes up with this year.
