Sierra’s Salt Dough Art

Sierra learned about tropical fruit in one of her lessons. She chose to research papaya and then I taught her how to make salt dough so she could make a papaya and paint it after it baked and cooled.

Ember and Everett couldn’t stay away from the kitchen. They saw Sierra grab a measuring cup out of the drawer and decided it would be the best idea to take every measuring cup (and other utensil) out of the drawer. They’re really helpful like that.

Payson played with some of the dough for a bit.

Sierra had lots of dough left over so she made a pig, too. Don’t ask me why she made a pig- she just felt like it!

The finished papaya! I think it turned out well. We need to coat it with Mod Podge before she can take it up to her room.

Random last picture is of Everett asleep after we went and picked up Brooklyn from school. He often falls asleep on our drive to the school and I lay him on the recliner to nap for a bit.
