stART ~ Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf


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 and would like to be added to the list, leave me a comment and let me know :0)

image This week we read Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf, by Lois Ehlert.  This is a great book that explains the life cycle of a tree.  As always Lois Ehlert’s textural collages are stunning.  As we are reading we love seeing all the different items that are used to create the pictures. 

IMG_0918We actually decided to read this book after Emily came home with her Art Project from school.  They made leaf prints and it reminded me of the cover of the book.  

We actually did leaf prints at home with our art group at the beginning of autumn too.  They are so much fun to make and even the littlest kids (15 months old) were able to get involved and make great prints!

Lois Ehlert's collage illustrations are always inspiring.

That's a great idea and we still have plenty of leaves. We love Lois Ehlert books.

This a great way to work with leaves. We so need to start painting again at my house.
