Grandparent’s Day Idea

Grandma, read no further!

Here’s an idea from the Holidays Around the Year book that we did as part of our seasonal Friday lesson last week.

We learned the science behind suminagashi art (marbling paints) and created beautiful card covers.  Inside the kids have written letters to both sets of grandparents for Grandparent’s Day.  We finished them off with some raffia decoration and, voila, a great keepsake for the grandparents (and a nice science and writing lesson for school!)

I bought a marbling kit several years ago that has lasted me forever.  That’s what we used for this project.
