Going all the way back to July 4th- Here is a fun watercolor/ mixed media flag inspired project. I taught this project to seniors in Assisted Living and modified it for my Memory Care students as well. Everyone was very happy with the results! We painted the design in watercolor, applied glitter to the stars and dimensional paint to the frame. We raised the stars with small pieces of foam core for a three dimensional look.

In addition to planting out our pots, we started vegetables from seed and planted them in our raised beds. Here are a few of our sucesses. Cucumbers, peas and radishes did pretty well until the really hot summer weather kicked in.

We recently tackled making Polymer Clay Calla Lily pendants and they came out beautifully!
