today we celebrated doodlebugs' one year anniversary! 34ish meetings, loads of paint, a good dousing of glue, many busy hands, plenty of smiling faces, and enough awesome works of art to fill a gallery... here we are! it also happened to be the 2nd birthday of one of our regular artists, so there was plenty to celebrate!
we made crowns with the paint daubers and fancy scissors,
we frosted & decorated nilla wafers with frosting & peanut butter (what kid doesn't love edible art?!?!),
and we continued our work on the "thank you" banner for the upcoming ribbon-cutting ceremony for our new playground.
we're still playing with the open format of multiple activities, and it seems to be working well for keeping everyone engaged a bit longer and stretching our creativity. here's to another year full of more art, different ideas, new friends, and lots of fun!
