stART ~ The Snow Lambs

 

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 week we  read The Snow Lambs, by Debi Gliori.  This is a story about a Sam and his sheepdog Bess.  While they are counting their sheep the Bess goes missing.  A snow storm is coming and Sam is worried about his dog.  Find out what Bess was up too for the wonderful ending to this story.  I loved how after the first couple of pages you can see two stories through the illustrations, what is happening with Sam and what Bess is doing.

We made some Snowflakes to go along with this book.  We used some q-tips, glue and glitter.  Both Juliette had fun creating their unique snowflakes by gluing the q-tips onto blue construction paper.   When they were all finished we sprinkled iridescent glitter over the q-tips.  I love how they sparkle!

Emily did her snowflake all by herself.  She  was able to break her q-tips to the size that she needed by folding them in half.

Great snowflakes! I'm wondering if we are going to have any REAL snowflakes this year - what a mild winter!
