For CoOp on Wednesday,Mrs. Holly organized a trip to The Mosaic Art Factory! She was extra generous and picked up the tab for everyone’s Christmas ornament project…so THANK YOU Mrs. Holly!

Every year, Mommy tries to make something “crafty” with Reese as a keepsake, but he’s really just not the Martha Stewart kinda kid. Usually a few brush strokes to paper and he’s done…so I don’t push craft projects on him because really, he’s NOT interested!

This project, however, totally captivated Reese! From the scooping of glass pieces, to the placing of the mosaic parts, he worked really hard and was quite proud of his finished product. The hardest part was saying goodbye to the mosaic while we waited a week for the drying/grouting process.

Reese picked a truck for his mosaic work.
The first step was scooping the bins of broken (smooth-ish) glass pieces.
Reese chose blue, black & green for his truck colors.

Mommy threw in some mirror chips for the wheels.

The next step was spreading the “glue” onto the backing piece like peanutbutter.
Reese did amazingly well at spreading the glue.

I didn’t capture any pieces of Reese working on his project.
I was busy helping him find the small pieces that fit best onto the truck base.
He completed the entire project himself, except for the wheels.
I told him I would be happy to put the mirror chips onto the wheels for him.
He assured me…”Mommy, it’s still MY project though, right?”
Of course dear!

The finished truck ornament…waiting for black grout.
We can’t wait to see the completed project!!

And here you have the finished product! I’m so thrilled with how it turned out.
Reese, well, he is beyond proud!
