4-H Decoupage Project

We've recently joined a 4-H group!! How exciting is that? The kids are now constantly thinking of projects they can put in the county fair this summer.

Today's project was decoupaging. Does anyone else think that word looks weird?

The kids were pasting pictures onto flower pots. It may seem an odd item for a kid to decoupage, but I suggested they use the pots to hold school items, toys or craft supplies. They were cool with that.

I cut apart about 2 years worth of old Mother Earth News magazines for their pictures. Lizzie's pot had only pics of things you could eat (very inventive!), Micaela used "pretty" pictures and Nick (being ALL boy) used pics of tractors, 4 wheelers and bugs.
