The kids did lots of problem solving for this project-- many of the lids were dirty (old dried milk, ew!) and needed to be washed and dried in the sun. I let them figure out the best way to do that. There almost wasn't enough blue, so they had lots of great ideas to solve the problem (paint the background instead, make the fish bigger, add sand, add white bubbles...)
Overall it was a lot easier than I thought it would be, but we haven't started drilling each cap in yet (the kids used Elmers Glue All). The kids are really looking forward to having a go with the drill. My plan right now is to carry on with a new project and have the kids go out one by one to try drilling with another adult. We'll see how it works!
