A New Museum

I was just over at Kdubs blog where she has a picture up of her son's latest school project.

What if there was a museum that displayed school projects through the ages. What project(s) would you submit?? How much of it was your work? How much of it was your moms??

Mine would be my Sphinx made from salt clay, from the 6th grade. I don't still have it. It didn't keep well. The outside dried nicely, but the inside rotted. Oh yeah...my mom did a lot of it!

Mine would be a clay indian mask from 4th grade. I made it all by myself....my mom isn't near as creative as yours..... I did make an awesome volcano for AJ and an tubular pueblo too......and can't forget my "egg child" from early adult hood our senior year....He is still in my mom's freezer....

I don't remember making so many projects in Elementary school like my kids have done.
In 6th grade we made a bench/stool out of particle board. You know, top, two side legs and two support pieces. We nailed them together, got real fancy with a wood file making oval shaped indentations on the edge, and painted them. Mine was yellow which matched my room.
I kept it for a long time. As a poor newly wed without a lot of furniture, we ate on it before we got a kitchen table and then it made a great plant stand.

Mine would be an Easter bonnet I made with my father. It was a village green, with a mirror for a pond and cotton wool coloured green for grass and hills. We glued little chicks and rabbits onto it and I thought it was the bees knees!

ooooo, I know!!

I would include my collection of clay models of fetuses in various stages of development. I made them to scale until it would have gotten too big. The first several months were true to life.

I was mighty proud of those. I think I was in 8th grade....made them for my Life Science class.

The link is broken! :(
Back in primary; I use to do all my work and have either Mom or Dad look it over for me. :D

In third grade I made a big maple leaf, thing-a-mabobber holder for mom. I used clay, rolled it flat, laid a real leaf on it, and cut it out, traced the veins in it, then glazed and fired it.

Mom loved that, and even though she is gone now, my white maple leaf thing-a-mabobber holder is still in mom and dad's house.

That, my friends, is 34 years old!

My dad and I made an indian pueblo (?) made out of popsicle sticks. It had a cool styrofoam totum pole that we painted and put in front. Yes, Dad did most of the work. I think he had a lot of fun. It was fun working with him.

I did my science project on mold. It was very interesting to a little kid that things like lemon drops and penisilin are made from mold. I remember doing most of the research and the project myself. It was actually fun.
