This weekend the arts festival was open to the public and I was assigned the booth most likely to have the highest traffic. Noodle Kaboodle.
Swim “noodles” had been cut into discs by the wonderful women in the supply room. Each child gets a paper plate with one disc hot glued in the center (also prepared by aforementioned w.w.) The child then builds a sculpture using several loose ones, toothpicks and other plastic foam shapes.
My job was to hand out plates, foam and toothpicks, engage the artist (or not) in conversation about their creations, and help he/she put it into a plastic bag to take home.
It was non-stop. Friday night 5-9, Saturday 10-9, and Sunday 1-5. A huge success. I’m exhausted!
