Awesome Aztecs...

... well, they will be in  a couple of weeks when they're all dressed up in their super cool helmets! :)

We had an afternoon of miniature food making (for the chinampas), made papier mache pots for the big house and added details to our helmets.

 I LOVE the helmets!! They are looking really good!!

Wolf under construction

Took this when the afternoon sun was coming through
the window so the wolf looks a little yellow - it's really a
tasteful gray :)

Super cute jaguar. Despite the fact that
jaguars normally have BLACK noses
this child chose to do a pink one :)

The green thing is a snake :) I think it needs a tongue!

Gotta say I've loved watching the kids make these. They're the best any class has ever done - and they're always wearing them. One child yesterday painted her parrot helmet bright red, then put it on her head. She had a nice red ring around her hair and forehead for most of the day :) 

It's nice to know they're enjoying the project :)


  1. They came out beautiful Lynn! What a fun project for your kids!!

    1. Thanks Sue :) They're definitely enjoying themselves although I have to say the classroom was a disaster on Friday afternoon with glue and paint everywhere. I felt I couldn't leave it for the cleaners so spent an hour with the broom and sponge after school :)

  2. What masterpieces! Just linked up to your blog through a giveaway and am happy to be a new follower!

    1. Nice to meet you - I'll visit you later today too :)

  3. They are gorgeous! You get such high quality work out of your kiddos! Neat stuff, Lynn...

    1. I'll post the feathered parrots later - the bird people are a little slower than the mammals for some reason :)
