crafting around the world

Today in Jason's Peoples of the World book we read about crafts from around the world (be still my heart!).   The book included a simple batik project for the kids to try.  Well, who am I to say no to a craft?!  I set out white paper, a white candle and watercolors.  The kids drew a simple picture with the candle and then painted over it to reveal the design.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy!  I have a project for a simple batik on cloth stored away in my bookmarks... somewhere...  It involves using blue Elmer's glue and fabric paint.  I've got to get to the store so we can try this one.  Gotta go.... Cameron's moved on to painting her body....
