Lovely day at Egyptian school today. Do you like their necklaces? I had 21 little creatures of very mixed ability. It was a sequence of gluing, cutting and folding repeated ten times. Some kids took one look at the demonstration and had it down pat while others were still confused tenth time round. This must make school teaching a very difficult job.
When the collars were dry (ish) we rubbed them with Treasure Gold and Silver. With young kids you always have to explain that you don't dig finger nail deep into pot of rub on gilding cream. The words 'light' and 'gentle' were hugely open to interpretation and ranged from hardly visible to all over clothes, desk and face.
About three or four children completed their project today. I'm going back next week as a volunteer for a couple of hours to help the others finish off. Good fun!
