stART ~ Beach Bugs

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 Beach Bugs, by David A. Carter.  This is a really cute pop up book that shows many of the fun things that you can do while at the beach.  Emily and Juliette’s favorite page is the one with all of the fireflies that actually light up.

To go along with this book Emily made her own sand castle out of sand paper.  I cut out some different castle shapes and gave them to Emily to glue on however she wanted.  Then I also provided crayons, buttons, glue and actual sand to decorate the castles with.


Emily decided that she wanted to cut the door in half and glue the sides so that it could open up.  I was so proud of her for coming up with that all on her own.  I love to see her using her creativity!!


Emily was very excited to be able to use one of her Ariel stickers to add to the picture too.

Thanks for your fun comments on my blog! Just wanted you to know that I tried linking our Fidgety Fish but I keep getting an error message every time I try loading the thumbnail pic from the web or from a file, so it won't let me.
