stART ~ Pinkalicious

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.

Emily received Pinkalicious, by Elizabeth Kahn for Christmas and both girls have not been able to put it down.  They look through the book and retell the story to each other when I am not available to read it to them.  So I thought this would be the perfect book for our first stART project of the new year!

IMG_1689We had fun with pink and created a pink cupcake collage with pink Easter Basket filler, pink dot markers, pink pom poms, pink sequins, pink buttons and pink pipe cleaners.  Emily and Juliette loved helping me find and think of different pink things that they could use for their projects.

First, I cut our a pink cupcake shape from some craft foam.  Then I gave the girls glue and our collection of pink collage materials and let them go to work.IMG_1684

Emily chose the markers to start with and Juliette went right for the do-a-dot markers.     IMG_1687IMG_1686

To finish them off we sprinkled them with white glitter for a perfect sparkle!

A couple years ago, we painted a picture of a cupcake pink and glued real sprinkles on it to go along with this book, but these are so cute that I think it's time we did another story art project with it!!

They are so cute!! I have seen this book but never read it because my two oldest are boys...I will be so excited when my baby girl is old enough to do crafts so we can do fun pink projects like this! :)

My daughter would adore this pink cupcake craft. I just read another post about a Pinkalicious party at a library -- wish ours would host something that elaborate. They even had "Green Food" take home treats!

I love Emily's cupcake - so creative. I admit that I don't like Pinkalicious book, I do like others in the series though.

All that pink makes me wish I didn't live in a house full of boys.
