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 The Easter Chick , by Geraldine Elschner. This is a cute story about a little chick that wants to be born on Easter Sunday. All the animals in the barnyard are not really sure when that is since it always falls on a different date each year. The old owl however, helps the mother hen and her chick to know when Easter Sunday is. The story is well written and the illustrations are beautiful.
We made some really cute Easter Chicks hatching from their eggs to go along with this book!
Emily and Juliette decorated a yellow oval piece of construction paper with yellow markers, feathers and tissue paper. Then they added a white half shell and yellow wings. Then they glued on two wiggly eyes and a orange beak. Although I had everything prepared in advance they were able to put their chicks together however they liked.
(the black is where the shell is cracking some more)
