Dot, here is a thought for your "thought-pot". Try using Shrinky Dinks
Shrinkable Plastic. You can use this media for any art theme that you want.
The kids just go crazy with this media. All you need are colored pencils,
scissors and a Toaster Oven to Bake (shrink) their pieces. It is almost
"magical"... I have NEVER had any children be anything less than amazed and
enthusiastic....mistakes shrink right along with their piece and projects
always look better than they thought! At the High School level, they have
had their students trace famous artists works...color and shade as per the
pictures. The finished product was a unique pin. They sprayed the pieces
with Clear Acrylic. Put them on display etc. with notations of famous
artist. Students finally got to keep them... Magnets, Ornaments, Learning
Pieces, Zipper Pulls, etc., etc... You can get their site The kind of plastic you would want is their Frosted
Ruff N' Ready... Good luck, Betty
