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.
I love the book Not a Box, by Antoinette Portis! I love how it inspires children be able to use their imaginations and creativity to do or be anything that they want. The simple line drawings are perfect for the suspense of the story. We love guessing what his box is and what he will do next. One thing is for sure, this is NOT a box!
To go along with Not a Box we got creative with two large boxes that I had. Pushed the table out of the way and put down a table cloth. Then I gave them paint, stamps , foam rollers and paint brushes and let them create to their hearts content.
This was one of the best projects we have ever done, I think they would have painted all day if we had more boxes.
Clean up was CRAZY but totally worth it, here are a few pictures to give you an idea of what the house looked like afterwards :)
