I've been a little busy with our move but I'm back!
For the kids biggest school fundraiser of the year, they ask each class to complete an art piece that will be auctioned off during the event. So with Modge Podge in hand, I asked the first graders to collect candy wrappers over the summer. I had each student decoupage two candy wrappers on to regular drawing paper. We let them dry over night then using a map I had blown up, I cut the wrappers into each shapely state and placed all the states together again to create a country.
We added a plaque to the corner, too.
