Solar Prints

Our friends Paul and Sade gave the girls a solar print kit and we got it out for the first time yesterday.
Bits of nature were gathered,
checked out and chosen,
and placed on the special paper in our makeshift darkroom.
Then we placed them in the sun
and waited.
Then it was time to bring them in.
The bits of nature were removed,
And the paper placed in the water. 
And the magic of the sun was revealed!
Next, it was Emma's turn.
"Look at mine, Grace!"
What a great project!  The girls were in totally awe that the sun was able to create such magical pictures.  Thank you Paul and Sade for this wonderful kit.  It will surely be used many, many times in the coming months!
