Pinwheels For Peace

Desert Shadows celebrated the International Day of Peace yesterday by holding a Pinwheels For Peace family event. Families made pinwheels and decorated the playground with them. The pinwheels will be shipped off to children around the world.
Luckily the pinwheels were left on the playground over night, so our toddlers enjoyed them this morning during outdoor environment!

Salty Watercolors

This has been our favorite art project so far this year. First we squeezed glue on our canvas. Then we sprinkled salt on our glue design, and shook off the excess salt. Finally, we gently touched a paintbrush loaded with watercolor paint to the salt covered glue and watched the color travel through the design. The results are stunning!
