I covered our table with newspaper, and set out some craft supplies... primarily glitter paint and pre-cut square white construction paper. The kids had free reign to create on the white paper.
After the children painted the paper, we took a little break for a very Israeli lunch of pita, raw veggies, chick pea humas, red lentil humas, salsa, and carob honey balls for desert (Good work on the food, ladies!). The painted paper dried (mostly) while we ate. Then we started cutting the snowflakes!
They turned out beautiful! Very reminiscent of one of our favorite books, The Snowy Day, by Ezra Jack Keats.
They'll be in the post first thing Sunday morning (because the Israeli work week starts Sunday!) Hopefully they will arrive on time! We hope these will be a blessing to the children in Newtown. It certainly blessed us to make them.
