* Camp Stimey Spring Break Sensory & Social Skills Special Session
Ah, Day Three of Spring Break! Unless my memory is faulty, Day Three is traditionally All About Squooshy Art and Playdate Day.
You know me, always traditional. So I made sure to sandwich our squooshy art time in between our playdate and our sleepover. I also wedged in some heavy duty basement-playroom cleaning time, but that’s not fun at all, so I’m not going to talk about that.
I’m sure that of all the words I’ve used thus far in this post, “squooshy art” is probably the most interesting to you. Let me be a little more clear. Last year, Sam and I made a Peeps diorama with a friend, having been inspired by the Washington Post’s Peeps diorama contest.
This year I was inspired to lead a Peeps diorama art day by the Peeps rabbit we blew up in the microwave last year. More specifically, I made a diorama of The Blob.
Oh, right, and my kids made some too. Sam was the only one who didn’t annihilate any Peeps to make his diorama. He made a sweet little castle scene featuring the Rainbow Fairies and some of their friends.
Jack made a somewhat confusing Super Mario Bros. Wii background diorama with an impaled Peep sitting in front. As with Quinn, I’m sure it means something. I’m just not sure what.
I think you might know that these finished (and oh, so polished, if I do say so myself) works of (yes, I’m going to call it) art don’t tell the whole story. The real story here was the experimenting part of the process. And here is where the “squooshy” comes in.
I present to you: Our Victim:
Thus concludes the Squooshy (and then Flat and Hard) Art portion of Day Three.
