They used student from the audience to help in play as well as a teacher. Those in the audience also contributed with some sound effects. It was a fun break from testing.

What can you do with used dryer sheets? This was the question that Mrs. Sunny Howard’s art classes were given for their Asian painting project.
Art in Japan was discussed, with examples of how they used “Nature” in their pictures.
Tagboard paper was used to draw their pictures.  Dryer sheets were then glued to the tagboard, and then the painting began. Mixing and tinting the colors until they achieved the color they desired.  They turned out beautifully.  The creation of ‘Painting on a Dryer Sheet’ was created.
