A Story + Art = A Great stART!
Welcome to stART! I hope that you will enjoy our book and art project and maybe even share your own too! For an explanation of stART click here.
This week we read Five Green and Speckled Frogs, by Priscilla Burris. This is a cute book based on the song. The repetitive text makes it easy for Emily to read, or sing along.
Since Emily has been requesting this book so often I knew it had to be used for our stART project this week! I wanted another project that could help her tell the story and this is what I came up with. I printed out a frog clipart and then all I needed was 6 popsicle sticks, a paper towel tube and supplies to decorate the frogs.
Emily decorated the frogs with wiggly eyes and sequins
Emily colored the paper towel tube with brown marker and glued on some sequins.
I taped popsicle sticks to the frogs and made 5 slits in the paper towel tube. I also made a slit in the back and added a popsicle stick to help it stand up on its own.
