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 to get ready to celebrate the 4th of July we have been reading Corduroy's Fourth of July, by Don Freeman. This is a simple board book that both Emily and Juliette are able to enjoy. The book is sturdy enough to stand up to Juliette tugging at the pages and the simple story lists some of the fun things that you do to celebrate the 4th of July. Emily and I talked about the things that we saw in the pictures and how they were similar or different from the things that we are going to do.
Emily and I made a flag inspired wind sock to help decorate our house for the 4th of July.
Emily used the star piece to our shape sorting bucket to cover a piece of blue construction paper with star prints.
I didn’t have any streamers handy so I cut red and white tissue paper into thin strips. Once the stars where dry I had Emily glue the tissue paper strips to the bottom of the paper. She did a great job with the red and white pattern. Once she covered the bottom in the tissue paper we rolled the blue paper and taped it together.
I hole punched two holes in the sides at the top and used a shiny silver pipe cleaner to hang it.
I love this festive windsock and Emily had a great time making it!!
