the finished product!......

Here are the completed community nests! you can see, there is one for each grade level
(3,4,5)....each 'egg' has been filled with 'food' brought from home by each student...items such as beans, lentils, rice, oatmeal, Cheerios and peas are inside each...meant to represent your family and how they feed and take care of you. The eggs were sewn shut and placed in the nest. Each artist wove a reed into the felted sides to represent themselves as part of a community, and added additional strands, as diverse as a pet horses' hair, gift ribbon from a birthday, and old shoelace from favorite sneakers and hair from big sisters' trim! All in all, this was a great experience!
