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 Planting a Rainbow, by Lois Ehlert. This is a colorful picture book that is great for teaching children about planting a growing a garden. I love that the flowers and plants are labeled so that I can teach Emily the real names of each plant.
After reading the story Emily made her own garden rainbow!! I saw the idea for this project in her Highlights High Five magazine and knew I wanted to try it with her.
First I cut out a bunch of yellow circles and gave them to Emily to glue on a large piece of white paper. Next, I gave her a small sponge and different colors of paint and had her sponge paint around the yellow circles.
After that, Emily drew stems and leaves on the flowers.
