Well I’m from Louisiana, and I try to spread my love for Louisiana artists from time to time. Today my class of campers learned a little about @george_rodrigue and his #bluedog work. We read #areyoubluedogsfriend and took a look at his coffee table book #bluedogman Do you know his work? I love his blue dog work, but my absolute favorite piece of his is a painting of his son Andre called Kiss Me I’m Cajun. (😍👉👉👉 last photo) It reminds me of my childhood home on the bayou.💗
We have incorporated lots of outdoor play this year at Figment. We have been working on our garden area, and continue to work on our outdoor animal areas. Everything is a slow process, but a labor of love. 😍👉👉👉
We are adding a bat house to the Figment garden. So here’s the deal. We got ducks so they would eat bugs in the garden and fertilize the garden. Well, ducks poop a lot and that attracts flies. Did you know that single bat can eat up to 1,200 mosquito-sized insects every hour, and each bat usually eats 6,000 to 8,000 insects each night? We learned a lot about these little bug eaters today and made flying bat sculptures.

Flip through to see some explosive volcanos! We started the day making our own play dough. This was a great math lesson and tons of fun to do as a group. My aunt @readingsue donated these tiny bottles that worked great as our magma chamber for the lava. Build them add baking soda, red food coloring, and vinegar and 💥. I have to add that I found these white trays on the @mericherryla recommended supply list and we love them. I use them for countless projects. 🎨👍 Much cleaner look than the terra-cotta dishes we were using.
