Paint Party!

I can't believe it's already time to say things like this, but we wrapped up the Art Group/Young Scientists summer with a paint party today.  Jessica and I have been thinking it might be a good idea to just have our group meet during the summertime when we can spread out outside like we have been..we were also starting to worry about keeping ideas fresh and enthusiasm up year round, so both of us have chosen other programs to run during the school year.  We both felt good about the decision but are now having second thoughts.  The families that have been coming to AG/YS have grown to love it and ALL the kids keep saying things like "OOO, next time can we...?"  It's hard to tell them all we're taking a break and to see their disappointed little faces so one or both of us might do a "lite" version of AG/YS in the months to come. It's too late to do it next month since the deadline for the FH newsletter and fliers has passed but maybe if my next program is a total flop next month I'll do it...or Jessica....or both of, we don't know.  I know you are all DYING to know so don't worry, I'll keep you posted.  ;-)

Anyway, here are some pictures from the party.  We let them go hog wild outside with the paint and painted a few faces...inside we had materials for t-shirt painting.  We had talked about prepping the shirts with transfer paper and "FH Art Group/Young Scientists, Summer 2012" on the backs but we ran out of time and I'm now regretting not making the time to do that.  Would have been really cute.  Oh well!
