It took a little while to get all the materials set up, so Claude had to play with some veil poi in the meantime…
But Tuck and I had gotten everything necessary to make some weighted, PVC, practice contact staves — for the whole family! The kids love contact staff videos and it does make some sense as being the next prop that Béla could learn and use with fire.
Of course, making a thing, is not always as fun…
… as using a thing.
Later in the week we watched David Byrne’s new film Contemporary Color, about color guard. I could see how the kids’ cheerleading/breakdancing classes, AND the contact staves, could fit into this idea, and they were really into the movie (which is great).
Why shouldn’t there be a Philly homeschool color guard?
I don’t know if anyone else notices, but that is a BIG leap in writing quality for Béla.
I wonder where one gets… throwable rifles?
