Froggy Faces and Blowing

       We had a lot of fun this morning making these froggy faces.
At the art table the families found paper shapes, green colouring tools and party blowers.  Buttons and glue gun were off to the side.
They coloured, added buttons for eyes and punched a hole to add the party blower for the frog’s tongue.
Then at a separate table they could try to blow little balls around some lily pads.
It was so much fun to watch them first try to blow through the blower and second to try to aim and hit the balls.
Perseverance was the word that came to mind as I watched some children try and try.  They just didn’t give up.  Sometimes they blew until the blower fell apart.
Then there was the competitive children or the dad that was encouraging them to be.  Either way it was a lot of fun.
