stART ~ Wiggle

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 have been enjoying Wiggle , by Doreen Cronin.  This was one of Emily’s first real favorite books.  She would cry when we had to return it to the library and remembered it every time we went to the library.  It is a simple rhyming text about wiggling.  I love reading it and have read it so many times that Emily follows right along.  Soooo…..”Do you wake up with a wiggle?  Do you wiggle out of bed” I highly recommend getting a copy of the book to see all the fun wiggles!!  (BTW ~ I will be reading this book to Emily’s preschool class today!!)

I have wanted to use this book for stART since I began stART, but never really thought of something to go with it.  But really there are so many open ended art projects that could go along with it.  We decided to wiggle around some yarn on a paper to make beautiful pictures.

Emily picked the colors and the paper and went to work.  Her yarn was wiggling all over the paper!

String painting such sounds like a good way to get the "wiggles" out to me! :0)

I'm totally stealing this project! My kids both love this book too, along with the others in the series, Stretch and Bounce. I had to finally go buy Wiggle (actually got it from paperbackswap.com) because they couldn't get enough of it :)
Thanks for a great project!
