The Tigers are Sweet!

Dear You Art Workshops, 2014, Vietnam, FinlandArlene TuckerComment

Not only are the Tigers sweet, but they have a sweet tooth and sweet sense of humor!  It was fun talking with them about what kind of candy they like and when they give candy to their friends and families.  Aleksi likes Salmiakki like a good Finn!  

I'm not too sure if their friends in Vietnam can even imagine what Salmiakki tastes like!  Toti, that's going to be an interesting challenge for you to explain :).

This topic started some great stories on the candy bags they sewed together.  For example, Vilma said, "I drew raining lollipops!" Ida and many of the other Tigers drew ice cream and cookies for their friends.  Using autumn leaves the Tigers picked up from the forest adds a beautiful touch to their artwork too!

This was the first time The Tigers practiced writing their new friend's names on their bag.  I'm sure everybody is excited for their next meeting on Skype!

I know I am!
