Spring Projects

This is the art craft we did this year to celebrate the holiday. It encompasses various mediums, layers and textures (paper, markers, playdoh and cotton), so it was a lot of fun to make. During the activity, we talked about luck: what it means and what my son considers to be lucky or have a lucky day. We had a blast making this craft! Below the photo I list materials needed/used to make the craft, as well as the step by step process my son followed.
