Mimi's Summer Day Camp, Day Seventeen - India Week

I can't believe I forgot to put up a page about day seventeen! Whew! Must be getting busy around here.  The last day of our "trip" to India was fun, too.
 KT fed Turk some cherry tomatoes (the turkey loves them!) which has nothing to do with India, but it was fun.
 KT made a salt dough candle holder and put beads in it, then we baked it for about 5 hours.  This was to celebrate the festival of light, Diwali.
 KT painted an Indian flower (a paint by number design.)
 We had our weekly trip to the library on Thursday this week.
 When we got home, we tried out our hand with painting a "henna" design on KT's hand.  She had gotten a black heart stamp at the library, so we designed around it.
 KT wanted to paint her face.
 We drew some "henna" hand designs on the pavilion floor.
 We tried our hand at wrapping a sari.  I had a couple of long scarves that we tried, but they needed to be a bit longer.  We had lots of fun trying, though, and KT even suggested some other wrapping ideas that worked somewhat better!
Here's the same picture I put into a new app called PencilSketch.  I just love this.

We have only one more week of summer camp and we're going to Canada next week.  I'm going to be sad, we've been having so much fun this summer.  Can't believe KT is off to Kindergarten in just a few short weeks.
