Sandy Mobiles

This week at our Friday workshop we looked at the work of one of my favorite artists, Alexander Calder. 
Usually when I introduce Calder, we make shapes out of paper or cardboard for our mobiles. This time I decided to use make up sponges instead. I love the colorful ones in funky shapes but the white ones were easier to find in bulk.
The kiddos colored them with markers and stuck gardening wire into each one. Balance was a tough concept but I think they did pretty well. They were all excited to take them home. I call that a success ;)
