All went went with the first phase of my paper maché project for the BEA kids over the weekend, and now it's onto phase 2 -- "carving" the pumpkin into a jack-o-lantern. Today is the start of Halloween week at BEA, so we're kicking off Monday with the "Great Pumpkin Project." The students are going to make their very own jack-o-lanters from paper maché. Today is going to be the toughest part of the project -- dipping newspaper strips into the flour mixture and layering a balloon with them them. It's definitely going to be an exciting, and very messy, experience for all the staff and students. I can't wait!!!
