I hope everyone had a well rested Thanksgiving break. Each grade level is back to drawing and creating. Over the weekend I was introduced to a new webpage called Budsies www.budsies.com. On the page students can turn their artwork into custom plush toys (prices do vary) Check it out for a one of a kind stuffed toy.
