After doing some school this morning we went to the library for the henna program. The girls picked out their Summer reading book prize (a book) and we went into the program.
We’ve seen Hummingbird henna before, quite a few times, so the girls already knew about how henna is made from a plant, black henna is from a chemical and is dangerous, why people get henna and what some of the designs mean. We tried our hand at our own designs and the girls waited for their turn to have Mrs. Anita draw a design on them.
Hannah was working on a hat for Mr. Otter and she finished it at the library, I think he looks ready for Winter.
Here is Bethany’s design, the glitter is just to make it look pretty while the mud dries.
Hannah got a lizard.
Grace got a dolphin.
I also did a design on Hannah’s other hand, but she took it off before it had time to set, so it probably won’t turn out too well. Here is a link to a site that has a whole bunch of henna information, designs, warnings, places to buy it and the science behind henna.
Hannah has been working on some more harmonica songs, maybe tomorrow I can get a video of her. She was frustrated that Bethany was showing Grace how to play the guitar so she went and grabbed her harmonica and started asking for new songs. I’m not sure how she’s going to play the drums and the harmonica at the same time though….
Tomorrow is park day, yay! And we need to finish up our art for the art show, do some school, cook dinner (a friend is coming over) and do the laundry – so I guess we can’t spend ALL day at the park.
