Field Institute of Taos 2nd & 3rd Grade After School Group

“Fred’s House”


I believe the true beauty of this project was the process of seven different, young children working together to build something for their new friend, Fred (a stuffed Pika). Having spent just four hours a week together for the previous three weeks, these children applauded each other’s ideas, laughed together, and worked together to create a cohesive and creative home for Fred.

Materials: Glue, tape, clay and paint, nature
