Welcome to stART! I hope that you will enjoy our story and art project and maybe even share your own too. All I ask is that you link back to A Mommy’s Adventures so that everyone can see all the other great projects that everyone shares 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 One fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, by Dr. Seuss. Emily LOVES when we read Dr. Seuss. We also have the board book version of this book for babies, which we also read with Juliette. Both girls love moving the little fish beads on the top of the board book. Emily pointed out all the different colored fish and helped Juliette count them.
I had some really cute foam fish that went really well with this book and when I saw the idea for finger painting on sandpaper at The Shafer Family I knew I had the perfect project. I actually did the finger painting with our art group and it went over very well, with the exception of on little girl that didn’t want to try it, but loved doing it at home :0)
After the paint dried we glued Emily glued the fish onto the sandpaper. As she was gluing them she told me that they were all following in a line. I love when she tells me stories about her art project! Emily’s Finished Sandpaper Ocean
