Astonishing is the right word for this art work…
The children’s arrangements focused on using BARK gathered from the tress around the backyard. The best time to take bark from downed trees is in the springtime. Please do not strip bark off of live trees because this will cause them to die.
To make this project, take a piece of bark and trim the edges to desired size.
Glue pieces of Styrofoam into bark and have the child arrange candied gumballs by poking the toothpick into the foam.
Mix some plaster (please do not let child do this, for adult use only). Pour over Styrofoam to cover.
Quickly sprinkle dirt, wood shavings, dried grass and any other material over wet plaster.
Set out to dry.
