    Each year our school does a fundraising event and each class needs to create an art project to auction off. Last year I had my DD 1st grade class put handprints on a bench then made them into flowers. It went for $1100 I was not planning on helping this year but no one in my DD kindergarten class volunteered so here I am again..........

    I know I do not want to do anything with handprints because several other grades are doing that. So I found this dove colored in with fingerprints and thought it might be cute to do something similar with a heart http://bcskidart.blogspot.com/2008/1...ten-class.html

    However I am looking for ideas to improve on this idea and make it look less plain????????? I thought about adding a colored background....maybe having each child (we have 11) make a thumbprint heart around the main heart and put their name under it?

    I am just not super creative and would love any input!!!!!!!!! Thanks!!

    My personal choice would be a wooden gardeners box or a canvas tote with bugs and flower thumprints.
    *caterpillars are great to make with thumbprints*

    I would add a few gardener tools, seed packages and even a small bag of soil.
    You could add a gardeners magazine or a kids garden book"The Very Hungry Caterpillar"

    Just some rambling thoughts

    Hi Wendi

    The link you provided is not working,
    (It says the page and blog does not exist)

    It might help someone else who is able to help you with the 'heart" project
    to see what you are describing.

    Hugs Mel
