How has it been almost a month since my last update? time flies when you are busy getting ready for conferences. Here are some of the highlights from this week. We decorated paper gingerbread men with all kinds of fun collage items -- buttons, paper, pompoms -- then we painted snow scenes using sponges, glittler, and paper snowflakes. We also used theraputty (kind of like playdough, but harder to manipulate) and searched for beads and buttons in the theraputty. This is great for strengthening our hands!
