Sometimes the things that happen that were unplanned turn out to be the coolest of the things.
We set out a large piece of butcher block paper, oil pastels and various items to trace and out of nothing grew a beautiful mural.
Children would work hard for a bit and run off to do something else for a awhile only to return to add more colors, lines and shapes to our growing masterpieces.
We thought about painting on it the next day to see how that might look but the next day the general feeling was that it was pretty cool the way it was. We all agreed it felt finished.
It is being displayed on a wall in our red room and it looks pretty cool.
