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 by either adding my button or a text link, 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 Plumply, Dumply Pumpkin, by Mary Serfozo. This is a cute book about a little tiger named Peter who searches for the perfect pumpkin. After he finds it we are left to wonder what he wanted it for, until the very end when we see the…I’ll let you find out for yourself, I wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise :0)
For our project we made our own little plush plumply, dumply pumpkin out of a pair of stockings.
All you need is a pair of stockings, fiberfill, 2 rubber bands and some paint.
First I cut the legs off of a pair of stocking. Then I cut each leg in half so that I had 4 pieces. I laid the pieces crossing over each other in the center to form a star. Then I stapled the center to hold them together.
I braided the top piece to form the stem and secured that with another rubber band.
Emily went to work painting her pumpkin orange and the stem green.
