stART ~ Lucky Tucker

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 Lucky Tucker, by Leslie McGuirk.  This is a cute book about a dog named Tucker who is not having a very good day, until he rolls around in a four-leaf clover patch that belongs to a leprechaun!


To go along with this book the girls made shamrock collages.  I gave them a piece of card stock in the shape of a shamrock and then set out markers, do a dot markers and all sorts of green collage materials like  pipe cleaners, wiggly eyes, feathers, stickers straws, velcro, ribbon, pom poms for them to get creative with.  IMG_2019IMG_2020

Coloring with the green markers


Emily decided to use the green wiggly eyes to turn it into a Shamrock Person


Juliette took a picture of her Shamrock collage when she was all finished.


The girl’s Shamrock Collages, I love how different they are and how they each used the same materials in their own unique way!
