Animal fortune tellers are made much like the fortune tellers our Otters have made in the past with the typical numbers and colors but these have animal prints on them. They enjoyed the simplicity and variety of the activity and were able to chat and have fun. Sometimes it's more about hanging out and being silly rather than producing a result.
Today our Otters got to experiment with some new and innovative designs for paper airplane flight. We had some designs that turned out well and some that we learned needed more work. Aerodynamics was a component to their design but I think whatever looked cool was the deciding factor. Maybe we have some future Aerospace Engineers among us.
Today's project revolved around designing our own Comic adventure! Although the turnout wasn't huge, it did provide me some extra time to work with the few that were interested in developing their stories. We talked about our characters, the problem or crisis they were experiencing and how would they solve them. I tried to give some examples and then they were off illustrating and commenting.
Our Otters had a lot of fun today making Bookmarks out of jumbo sized popsicle sticks. They had a large assortment of stickers to decorate their bookmarks and they all wanted to make "just one more". Luckily we had enough so that each Otter could make at least 4 different themed page keepers. This was a fun group to hang out with as they are all friends.
so for the past couple weeks we otters have been working on a big puzzle it's 1,500 pieces and we have a lot done. It's all about Disney characters we have been working hard to get it done and it is not finished quite yet but we are very close. Every day I come in to otter club I look at the puzzle and it gets more done every time. It's pretty hard but we otters can do it! well I hope we are not missing any pieces :(
here's what we have so far :)
