Last week, E and I went to a FANTASTIC playdate at a friend's house. I get such a kick out of watching her play - it seems like all of her friends are little 2 and 3 year old boys. They were running around like wild things and E just stood there watching them for the longest time, wondering what in the world they were making so much noise for! But, anyhow, I digress.
We got to do a lovely story and art project that I didn't have to plan! It was great! First, we read It Looked Like Spilt Milk by Charles G. Shaw. This is a really neat book about . . . . clouds, of all things! Specifically, how clouds can look like other things: spilt milk, a squirrel, a pig, whatever.
Then we got to the art project. We were provided with blue paper and white paint in squeeze bottles. The kiddos squirted paint all over their paper . . .
folded the paper in half and smooshed it real good . . .
and then opened it up to see what they had created! E thought hers looked like a crab.
Here are some of the other children's masterpieces!
