Pinterest Gone Wrong
It's no secret that a lot of teachers get their best ideas from Pinterest. I love scrolling through the thousands of creative ideas on Pinterest, especially the art projects. Last year, I was in charge of an office bulletin board, and decided to have the kids make as self portrait of themselves blowing the bubble gum. The coolest part was the pink balloon that was going to be poking out of their mouths! The kids had a ton-o-fun with this art project, especially since I let them chew the bubble gum first and practice blowing bubbles. Proudly, I hung up their work, after school that day. The picture tells the rest of this story. Early the next morning, this is what the bubble gum (balloon) looked like hanging out of every. single. mouth. Not cute. It sure had the attention of our 6th graders who happened to walk through the office. The office staff was amused too. Me, not so much.
