I also finished my last grad school paper ever this past Tuesday night and I attended my last class on Wednesday. I'm feeling pretty good right now :)
In order to make it through these last assignments I've had to pump myself up. I usually do that with music, and for some reason this song was in my mind the entire last month!
"Eye of the Tiger" brings me back to memories of high school track meets and bus rides when we would play our music to pump ourselves up for the competition...good times :)
For my own sanity I pumped myself up to make something other than a paper too ;) With M&Ms leftover from Eliana's 4th birthday party I made my version of Eye of the Tiger:
First make two circle eyes with the black food safe marker.
Then with a brown food marker make the nose, mouth and ears.
The make the tiger stripes with the black food marker.
*In order for your design not to smudge let each part dry first before drawing the next part.
The closest you'll ever want to get with a tiger ;)
And so much better than regular M&Ms ;)
I call this activity working on her fine motor skills.
You can call it whatever you want, but it was fun and delicious.
Red -- Ladybug M&Ms
Yellow -- Baby Chick M&Ms
