I had my Girl Scout meeting yesterday and the girls made the personal cork boards that I showed a sample of a few weeks ago.
The meeting really went well and the girls enjoyed the craft! This is an activity I highly recommend for troops or a craft for your kids. All you need is some painted and a couple of inexpensive foam stamps.
I am always amazed when I watch the girls create "art." They all look so free and uninhibited. I'm big on reminding the girls that art isn't perfect. If you feel like you made a mistake, then turn it into something unexpected.
One of the girls accidentally stamped the E in her name backwards, so I suggested that she stamp the second E backwards to match. She liked that the second backwards E made her "mistake" look more like that was what she had planed to do all along. Even her mom thought it was clever!
