We then wrote our final copies on the layered booklets, cut out the globes and bases and let the fun begin! After drawing and coloring, they outlined their pictures with extra fine point black Sharpie markers.
I managed to control the chaos and keep the glitter on the tiles. Glitter just seems to make everything better.
