Idea: Creating Mosaics

I will use the product I ordered in combination with other collected, found and created mosaic tesserae when building my mixed art mosaic projects to speed up my work with already cut tiles and more color choices. The tiles unable me to use more disciplined and structural designs where other shapes allow me to be more open and free with the flow in the design.

Idea: 4-H Water Day at Clover Camps

We teach 4-H in Mobile, Alabama and have 4 different Clover Camps each summer for kids 8-18. This year one of ours will be a Water Day where we will teach about our usage of water, water conservation, the water cycle and will all probably get wet. We want to have the children make rain sticks to show how important water has been to us and our Native American ancestors.

Idea: VBS - Construction Theme

I will be using the Fun Foam for 2 projects for our Construction themed Vacation Bible School. The first is to make photo frames. Children will dress up in a hard hat and carpenter's apron. The picture will be attached to a blueprint background with the Bible verse from Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." The frame will be decorated with peel and stick tools. The second project is to make Tangrams. A Tangram is cut from a square and has 7 shapes. These shapes are used to make a picture. We will have several to choose from, some easy and some challenging to teach children to have a stick to it attitude and not give up. God doesn't give up on us, we are his work in progress as he builds us into the kind of person who pleases him and lives for his purpose. Philippians 1:6 “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Idea: Warm Fuzzies

I am retired clergy and I call pompoms warm fuzzies. During my ministry I used the white ones for baptism, gave them following children's moments, gave them at hospitals and even buried folks with them. Now I give them to total strangers and tell them it is a warm fuzzy to make their day better. I get great pleasure sharing this way.

Idea: Craft Pool Necessity 

We love using hot glue during "craft pool" during summer day camp! Craft pool is where the kids have a chance to be creative and use their imagination to construct anything they'd like to from a kiddie pool full of leftover craft supplies such as ribbon, scrap paper, marker caps, buttons, tissue boxes, string, fabric, and more! The hot glue is a great product that will glue almost anything together.
