my girl and peace tea and a quilt

by karen #1965 third grade teacher...i have a creative daughter that drinks a lot of peace tea...this summer, i noticed peace tea cans piling up...wait...wait a minute...u ever heard of peace tea?..well, here is a picture of a can of peace tea...


so i see these peace tea cans everywhere...i was growing concerned that they were gonna take over our world...finally, i asked my daughter, "shouldn't you throw away these peace tea cans?"...she responded, "no, i am going to do art with them."...of course, i backed off then...cause i get that...making art outta stuff like cans...so, about 4 months later, the art is done...check it out...



here is how she wired it together....



so, never heard of peace tea.?.pretty neat site...go check it out...peace tea website...i think they get art at peace tea...

i really just love this piece of art that my daughter did...it is just cool...u want ur kids to be interested in stuff u like...and sometimes they aren't...but sometimes they are...when ur kids love stuff u love, well life can't get much cooler than that...

  3. She done goooood!! I saw it come across FB but just had time to really spend some time with it...I'm so glad she loves art and gets it!! I'm really glad she followed through and saved those cans...I do that all the time with things, but never get to it. It's a great piece!!!
