The start of this term is smack in the middle of Independence Day on August 31st and Republic Day on September 24th so of course my little smarty-pants and I discussed what these days mean and the symbols that come along with our Republican status.
For our art project we will be sculpting the gorgeous Scarlet Ibis out of clay! There's also another reason I decided to highlight our gorgeous national bird and it's sadly because some people have decided that the Ibis is fair game for wild meat 😩. It saddens me to no end to know that these lovely protected creatures have become a target in a place that is literally supposed to be a SANCTUARY. Let that sink in. So our art is dedicated to these fine birds, OUR national birds and I hope that we can all take a moment to appreciate their beauty and vow to blow the whistle where and when we can to ensure their survival.
So the Picassos sculpted them today and they'll dry and wait to be painted in their scarlet colour next week! Take a look :)
