…so do the numerous sightings of beautiful butterflies. I don’t know why it’s so much fun for little kids to trace their hands or feet, but for today’s Throwback Thursday, I want to share a two-part art project that I made in kindergarten: Feet Butterflies.
I still remember when Mrs. Cook traced my little feet to make this project. I have no idea why we were only allowed to use four construction paper dots on the toes instead of five. But I loved using glitter and glue, and I especially loved getting to use sequins as eyes!
I wonder if anyone else that was in my kindergarten class still has any of their Mrs. Cook projects? I wonder if Mrs. Cook had any idea that decades later, the fun projects she helped create would not only still be preserved, but then posted on a forum where the entire world could see them?
Let this be a lesson to you teachers out there in Blogland… You make more of a difference to the kids you teach than you may realize. And also, thirty or forty years from now, there’s no telling what kind of advances in technology there may be… For all you know, one of your students just might be showcasing a project you helped them with… on the moon!
Time to talk: What’s the oldest school paper or project you or your parents have saved? What grade were you in when you had your favorite teacher? Are there butterflies still prevalent in your neck of the woods?
