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. Be sure to stop by and visit the different links…every week there are so many different and fun book and craft ideas!
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 St. Patrick's Day in the Morning, by Eve Bunting. This is a sweet story about a little boy who was told that he was to little to participate in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. He sets out to prove that he is able to and it very proud of himself when he does succeed. To go along with this book we made some egg carton shamrocks to decorate our house for St. Patrick’s Day.
First I cut up an egg carton so that I had 3 parts together in the shape of a shamrock. Then Emily and Juliette painted both sides of the egg carton with light and dark green paint. Once they were finished I gave them gold and green glitter glue to add some sparkle! Both Emily and Juliette worked on this project, but I didn’t get any pictures of Juliette painting.
After the shamrocks dried we added pipe cleaner stems and a gold pipe cleaner at the top to hang them.
