I read a blog post over at Rowdy in First Grade on the book Rabbityness and the art project Jennifer did with her kiddos. I knew we had to try it out.This is an amazing book FYI. It deals with individuality and experiencing loss is such a subtle, beautiful way.
Only problem, no water colors. Boo hoo.
However-I did happen to receive a very nice e-mail from MPM School Supplies. They offered me $25 worth of school supplies to try out their company and let y'all know what I thought of it. Problem solved!
So, late late on Saturday night (okay, it was actually Sunday by that point), I ordered six sets of these babies:
Prang's the best when it comes to water colors. Sorry Crayola. I still love your crayons.
The MPM School Supplies site was easy breezy to navigate. Six sets put me $0.08 over plus shipping, but it was worth it.
ESPECIALLY BECAUSE THE SHIPPING WAS FREE.
That was a nice little surprise. I love me some free shipping.
Then I waited. And Wednesday this package arrived with my goodies.
Can you believe I ordered this on the weekend and it was at my house on Wednesday?
Look at these beauties:
We don't squeeze in time to do this sort of project often, but I wish I did. One of my kiddos came up to me later to give me a hug and thank me for letting them "do that painting thing."
