Painting with Bubbles

Snow Day means time to play with bubbles & paint. As I imagined, they continually pop in your face and for a surprising distance all around the container.  1 Tbsp paint, 1 Tbsp water, 2 Tbsp dish soap.  Loads of fun!

New Mandala Game

A new Mandala Game has been created!  This one will be revealed to students asap.  All others will have to wait for the next workshop.  Meanwhile a template created for a sub is available on TPT.  Happy to know that it can be printed on watercolor paper and that the ink holds up to watercolors.
