Welcome to stART! I hope that you will enjoy our story and art project and maybe even share your own too! The linky will be open all week.
I added a stART tab in my navigation bar to make it easier to search for past stART projects. Be sure to check it out!! All the books that we have read and did a stART project for are listed in alphabetical order.
This week we read Good Egg, by Barney Saltzberg. If you click on the link you can see a great video of this book in action…yes I did say ACTION!! This is a really simple but amazingly cute lift flap, pull tab book. Emily received this book from her Aunt as a Big Sister present when Juliette was born. She loved helping egg follow all the directions in the book.
I wanted to do a fun Egg Art Project that did not involve coloring hard boiled eggs since we will be doing plenty of that very soon :) I got the idea for this adorable painted egg from Kids Craft Weekly and knew right away that this would be perfect, especially since I have been wanting to paint on tin foil with Emily for a while now!
Tin Foil Painted Eggs
I cut out an egg shape from a cardboard box and wrapped tin foil around it. Then I filled up the perfect for paint palettes that I recently bought from Oriental trading with yellow, pink, purple and green (Emily insisted on the green paint) paint.
Emily painted the egg with a paint brush.
Finally while the paint was still wet she used a q-tip to make a design in the paint. This revealed the shiny tin foil that was underneath.
Emily had so much fun working on these she made 2 more!
