Emily's Scrap Paper Mosaic
This month's Open Ended Art theme is Mosaics. This weeks material is paper so I raided our scrap box to get some paper for Emily's mosaic. Since Emily loves to cut I had her cut up some of her cutting practice strips too!
Emily had fun gluing on the different pieces of scrap paper. She also enjoyed peeling the dried glue off of her fingers! I am so excited that she is starting to like gluing. Before any project that involved gluing took her only about 2 seconds before she decided that she did not want to do anymore. She worked on this project for about half and hour and finally said "Mommy, look at my mosaic I am all done!"
All those colored little squares of paper were calling my name and while Emily was working on her mosaic I made one too! I think it also helps Emily focus if I work on my own project next to her. She did not ask me to help her at all!
