We Made It: Friday Showcase....water noodle art

This week's fun isn't really a craft, but it was a fun way to explore art.
We took a "noodle" (meant for a swimming pool) and cut it into three inch pieces.
We got our noodles from the Dollar Store--I also plan to cut up some more for "blocks" for building with.
Luke is excited and ready to getting painting.
I simply put a little bit of tempra paint on glass plates. I always uses plates for painting like this, it gives the kids a lot of room to work with, and clean-up is really easy.
All the Dollar Store had were these flower shaped noodles, but I want to be on the lookout for noodles with different shapes.
I love Mark's rainbow!
A lot of concentration!!
Kimberly has been wearing this hat for a few days. The morning temperatures have been in the forties, but I don't really think she needs the winter gear--but I can't make her believe this.
Combining colors looked wonderful, as long as the kids took their time and didn't mix the colors.
This is Kim's work.
I couldn't resist another "hat" picture.

Mark even decorated the plates during clean up time.
The finished products....
I think I will save these to use as wrapping paper.
Check out all of the We Made It entries this week at Ramblings of a Crazy Woman.

What a great idea using the noodles as stamps. I've starred this one in my reader to remember to try it sometime.
