A couple of months ago, Madeline told me that she needed arts and craft items in order to make a mask in school. She said her teacher told her to gather things that we already have at home, not to buy anything.
I let her go through our art supply cabinet and figured she’d take the standard stuff: beads, feathers, glitter, sequins, pompoms and so on.
A few days later, she told me that she’d made her mask, but that I’d have to wait to see it until Evening Under the Stars, the annual celebration of art and music at the kids’ school.
Last week was the big reveal at Evening Under the Stars, and boy, was I surprised.
Can you guess why? Anything stand out?
She incorporated an insulin syringe cap into her design, and if I do say so myself, it worked well on her mask.
