I love combining literature and art, and now that I am creating the week's theme and activities on a book, this is a great activity for us.
This week our book theme is Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown. We have been doing a lot of activities to go along with this book, including our stART project for this week.
I thought that our project this week would go along with items found in the book. I drew a balloon on easel paper for Sprout and gave her red paint and comb to paint the balloon.
After trying this for a little while, we found that it wasn't really working for us. (Sprout did not like getting paint on her fingers. Even when I showed her that she could just wipe it on the paper.) So we changed over to using a paint brush. Sprout was much happier with this option.
Here is Sprout's final project.
