Tin cans and cloth

 Our pencils, pens and scissors have been sitting in these plain recycled tin cans.  For the longest time I have been wanting to pretty them up.  Finally yesterday after many months of daydreaming the project, we brought it forward.   We took scraps of material which were donated by my lovely sister Mad, splashed glue all over the surface and placed strips of the pretty material all around.  This is what we got.  It's pretty cute, I am happy with it and the kids had great fun. 

There was also a little time for face painting.  There is nothing that the kids like more than to get themselves all painted up!
