School Bench Project
Been awhile! Several months ago, I was asked by the school my grandsons attend if I would help with a project for their annual fun night fundraiser. They wanted to do a mosaic garden bench and what did I think? I asked for ideas on this and another forum and several of you gave helpful suggestions. Then the teachers said...there are two classrooms (3rd & 4th) and could we do TWO different ones...I said sure, (must have been insane at a week moment!). They are almost finished so thought it was time to share a few photos....
I have learned so much from this...and it has been quite an experience but if they bring a good price...all the work will be worth it....teaching 40 students (All in one sitting!) was truly an eye opener, and I appreciate what our teachers do each and every day!
One bench still needs to be grouted which I plan to do this evening. The handprint one needs a final clean up, and sealing.
The dinner/auction will be held on March 28, and parents and grandparents of the students will bid for them. We added each students picture to their mosaic so it would identify each individual student...which should bring a higher price. I am going to ask that they NOT be put outside but used in an entryway, a sun porch or four season room, or anywhere inside.
But I am going to miss the evening, as I will be at the SAMA conference. But you can bet I will be on the cell phone to see what the final bids ends up being!
Here are the tops of the two benches.
