To make this work you need the bigger feathers and a special calligraphy ink. How do I know you guessed it, i tried it several ways and then bought a bOok called George Washington for kids.. All the instructions are in the book. Oh yeah you also have to cut the end of the feather off.
Been there done that and kudos for trying, the munchkins will never forget.
I love that you share your failures and your successes both!
We did this years ago as a little center during Open House so the parents helped a bit. Very cute though and I agree with Heidi – love that you share both.
Trial and error… How humans really learn! Love that you shared this!
Don't you just want to laugh when you carefully plan an activity and then it goes bust? It always adds a little humor and (material for a great story) when this happens. Thanks for sharing- it reminded me of some of my experiences 🙂

Oh girl… I did the exact same thing a few years ago. Wild idea right in the middle of teaching and it turned out exactly the same! The kids enjoyed it anyway!
Love it, bust of not! The kids will remember the experience, and that's all that matters! 🙂
Michelle, thank you so much for posting this! Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who has disastrous moments in the classroom.
I did just make some really cool Dr. Seuss freebies if you want to come over and grab them.

🙂 Michelle, this totally made me giggle! I'm so glad I'm not the only one that does things like this! You're right, when it works it's amazing! Now anytime your students complain about something not working like their markers, remind them how easy they have it compared to George Washington!
