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 somewhere in your post so that others can see all the other great projects that everyone shares too! The linky will be open all week.
Check out the stART tab in my navigation bar where you can find our past stART projects. All the books that we have read and did a stART project for are listed in alphabetical order.
This week we read Cookie's Week, by Cindy Ward. This is another one of Emily’s most requested books to read at bedtime. It is a simple story about the naughty things, like knocking a plant of the window that a cat, named Cookie does each day of the week. This book is wonderful for teaching many different concepts such as cause and effect as well as days of the week.
For our art project Emily told me that she wanted to make a cat. I thought that it would be fun to make a shape cat since we had a shape themed Muffin Tin Monday at the beginning of the week. It is always fun when we are actually able to tie everything together really nicely like that :0)
First I cut out all the shapes and had everything ready for Emily before we started. I cut out:
- 1 Large Black Oval
- 2 Black Triangles
- 2 Smaller Pink Triangles
- 2 Small Black Ovals
- 1 Large Black Circle
- 1 Small Pink Heart
- 1 Large Black C Shape
Emily listened to my directions to find the shapes that we needed.
Then she glued them together. I gave her very general directions and let her place things where she thought they would look best. When I cut out the shapes and had it waiting for her I actually had it laid out differently. I love how she made hers look though :0)
She drew the face with white crayons…
…and colored in his fur with brown, grey, black and orange crayons.
