Technically not a "field" trip, more like an art trip.
We've done quite a few "learning" excursions with the kids but this by far was my favorite. It was so creative and yielded such great results.
A friend of ours and fellow homeschooler organized a trip recently to the Maine Art Glass Studio. The children each created their own fused glass tile. Sounds harmless, thankfully it was. But anything can happen when you give a 5 year old shards of glass and "nippers" to cut with.
I can't take any credit for these works of art my kiddos created. The designs were their own and except for cutting a few pieces here and there these pieces were wholly my childrens' doing. I'm hoping they will hang on our windows for like, ever. These glass tiles capture their unique styles perfectly and I simply love them.
These beauties are going to seriously brighten my winter.
I feel our yard space, front and back, are just the right size for how we want to spend our time at this stage of family life; enough space for me to grow lots of beauty, but not too much space that we have to spend a lot of time maintaining.
