Corn Cobb, Cotton Balls, and Water Bottle Lid: EYES!

Here's something to crack you up today! This is a picture of a project I helped a group of Pioneer Club girls make, to fulfill part of their "Artist" badge. These are self-image collages, made from empty milk gallon jugs and mounted on boxes. What I love most is their choice of EYES!!! The first one has some little dried corn husks, then just cotton balls, and then buttons inside water bottle lids. I just love it! I had a huge table-full of supplies and this is what they came up with! Oh the joys of working with kids. Now we'll finish the "Junk Art" project, then do a salt and watercolor painting. All for these sweet Future Artists of America!

Sallie,
These are just precious! ... And FUNNY! Each one is so individualized! Corn cobb eyes? Where in the world would a child come up with that idea? Thanks for sharing these pictures. Your kids are lucky to have you as a leader!
