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 their and on Pinterest

This week we read The Wind Blew , by Pat Hutchins.  Emily read this book at school and said she liked it so much that we took it out of the library to read together.  This is a cute story about a big gust of wind that comes through and blows all of the peoples things up and then mixes them all up.  Then it drops them down and goes out to sea.  Emily’s favorite part is when all the things get blown around and then dropped back down.  We thought it was the perfect book to talk about a windy day!

To go along with this book Emily made a windsock to help watch the wind outside.

The top picture part of the windsock was colored in by Emily and then laminated.  Then they added green strips of a plastic tablecloth for the streamers at the bottom.  To hold it up is a piece of lanyard, so we can put it outside and the rain will not ruin it!

Your windsock is fabulous! We love this book too :) I linked up even though my post wasn't super art related... though we were journaling and drawing throughout the project... hope it's not too much of a stretch :)

Great book! I love the craft. This will go great with our March poem about wind. Of course, our poem is about the old north wind and we've only gotten warm south winds this year!! I won't complain though. The windsock will work for both I'm sure ;)
