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 our art project actually came first and as we were talking about the design we agreed that it looked like Elmer the Elephant. So of course we decided to read the book Elmer, by David McKee to go along with the project. This is a story about a very colorful and elephant. In this book Elmer becomes tired of being so different and wants to blend in, however he soon realizes that things are just not the same without him. I love the message of individuality that this book portrays.
I am going to Mexico, well actually I am in Mexico right now for my best friends wedding and Emily and Juliette are staying home with Daddy. I needed a backpack to bring with me so I thought it would be fun to have Emily help me decorate one.
First I covered the edges of the drawstring bag with tape
Next, I drew a squiggly design on the front of the bag.
Emily and I colored in all of the spaces with fabric markers.
Emily pealed away the tape and revealed our awesome work of art. I am so excited to have this bag with me while I am away from my little girl.
I will be on a tour of Chichen Itza as you are reading this…but I can’t wait to come home and check out all of your wonderful stART projects!!!
