As a parent, I know that art projects can be a mixed blessing. Some are breathtaking. Most should go in the circular file. Worse still are things my kids build – they fall apart and break. They take up space.
God save me if my sons bring home noise-making pieces of art they have built.
As a teacher, I conveniently ignore my own good sense. I present wind chimes built in preparation for Mother’s Day as part of our “building music” unit.
Make it safe and keep the rubber side down.
