Wearable smarts… 2012
I swear I need to get out more. I got this great idea for making brain buckets for my students to wear when they were being super smart at something… in my class this makes total sense. Anyways, I got some crazy notion to wrap newspaper around some willing victims…my own children and their friends, and then use expandable foam in the can to create a brainy texture pattern. I let them sit for about 20 minutes with the brains on their heads and then when they were fairly dry I pulled them off and the next morning I painted them with acrylic paint.
The only oops (but it was a big oops) was that the foam SHRINKS as it dries so by the time they was ready for showtime they could only fit on a kindergartner’s head! Yuck! Kinders are blechy!
So, sadly, I ended using them as bowls for prize stuff in my class. Total bummer. Note: I will try this again but taking this research into account on my next attempt so I can actually have brains while I wear my brains!.
