sorry - no photos of students faces for privacy of course. I was new in the room and not about to whip out my camera anyway.
After the mini quilt show, we moved to the craft table. The kids worked on 'quilts' Mrs. Good had set up for them earlier in the week - gluing fabric on paper.
|we all loved his pattern! we guessed what colors would end up in the corners.|
Mrs. Good really thought the Quilted Postcards were a great way to show the kids how they could collage little pictures with fabric and glue stick. She did a little show and tell my my stash, and the kids got right to work! Check out these awesome peekaboo cards she found!

|one boy's art - patterns and repetition - he was SO proud of this!|
This next boy parked himself on the other side of the room at his own table and got totally immersed in the project. (A true artist - introvert right?) He loves Halloween and Pirates. Notice the shirt and lay? I think it's his regular wardrobe. He worked and worked on this orange background and then added a pirate complete with the eyepatch over top. It was awesome!

This next photo... the work of one of the teacher's assistants! : ) She was extremely 'into it' and had lots of fun getting creative.
|aren't the recycled cards a cool find?|
|so proud of her fruit bowl - it left us all hungry though! ; )|
While they were busy working, one boy announced, 'look at this!' he put his quilt up to his card and it made this wonderful diorama! : ) We loved it.
|the possibilities are endless! they loved to create with no rules.|
This was definitely one of the highlights of my trip. These students just delved right into creating. Even one older student who doesn't talk was smiling and laughing! It was awesome. I'm glad they had a good time.
