This project dates back to 2010. (It’s been up on this blog since then, but when I updated this website I lost this post.)
For my 2nd grader’s class project for the school’s annual fundraising gala, I made a beautiful birdbath from terra cotta pots. The top is a large saucer featuring a mosaic wave pattern with 2 colors of glass and glass marbles around edge. I turned the kids’ thumbprints into flowers, lady bugs, bees, butterflies, dragonflies, crickets and caterpillars. All the kids’ names are next to their thumbprints. It took me many hours to finish, but it brought in over $200 for the school.
