Friday we were able to do our Friday art project again, which we haven't been able to do in a while. I found this project on Pinterest and decided that is what we were going to do for our project.
I filled our paint containers with the colors of the rainbow.
I also took out our glitter green and gold paint for the kids to paint their 3 wooden hearts and 1 popsicle stick to make our shamrock for the lids.
The kids took 12 popsicle sticks for the lid and painted 2 of each color, and then did 1 extra any color, for a total of 13 sticks for the lid.
Some of the kids decided to paint the rest of their popsicle sticks so that the whole thing would be decorated. They used 45 sticks for the rest of the box, 12 for the base, and 32 for the sides.
We were only going to let them dry for a few hours and finish them, but we ended up having company and finishing them Monday... The kids glued the sticks together to make the lid. Some put the 2 end sticks on top and others put it under.
After their lids were finished they glued their shamrocks together and added them to their lids.
Here is Ethan's lid.
Next they worked on the base.
Here is Cody's finished treasure box.
Here is Dustin's he decided to only paint the 13 for the lid.
Here are 4 of the boxes finished up, Serena ended up using 60 popsicle sticks for hers and you can tell it is a lot bigger than the others!
