stART ~ Moo, Moo, Peekaboo!

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.  I have also included a list of all the blogs that participate in stART.  **This is a work in progress so if you have participated at least 3 times and would like to be added to the list, leave me a comment and let me know :0)


This week we enjoyed reading Moo, Moo, Peekaboo!, by Jane Dyer.  I actually bought this book from the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. for my youngest brother over 17 years ago!  I was going through books at my mom’s house and came across it.  I loved it when I bought it and I am so happy that I can now share it with my children!  It is a simple and cute board book.  On each page the animal that is featured on the following page is peeking through to give you a hint as to who it is.  Both Emily and Juliette loved reading along with me and guessing the animals and making the sounds.  Although it is a board book, my 4 1/2 year old loves it!!

I had big plans of making a peek-a-boo style project with pictures peeking through cutouts in paper, but Emily found some craypas and came up with her own project…and I have to say I LOVE IT! 


Emily hard at work on her picture.


She drew this picture all by herself and was so proud of it, I think it goes with the book perfectly!

I love all the little details like how they are behind the fence!

It turned out great! And you gotta love when they get old enough to have their own opinions about the art projects. :)
