7/18 Today Rachel was preparing for an art lesson with paper mache. We had all the paste mixed (flour & water) and ready in several bowls outside the classroom. When the learners came to start their project, one group said that their bowl was almost empty. Apparently a stray dog had come and decided to have a little snack and drank all the paper mache paste! We also had several learners that felt a need to taste the paste. We filled the paper mache "shakers" with dry beans and many of the kids weren't quite sure about putting something you could eat into a musical instrument. We told them they could open them when they got them home and eat the beans if they wanted to.
