stART - Goodnight Moon


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.

Goodnight Moon

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.



To see what other stART projects people did this week.  Go to A Mommy's Adventure.

    Very cute idea... My oldest was quite particular about messy hands as well. :)

    This is a great project! We love painting with all different "brushes" we have actually never tried a comb, I will have to add that to our activities for this week :0)

    Thank you for linking up to stART!!!

  4. How sweet. She looks like she was really enjoying it once she had herself settled. Great idea for the craft too.

  5. I found out as well that using non-conventional painting tools almost never worked out for us. The only one she loves is trains and balls. The book, of course, is loved by all :)

Please leave me a message. I love "talking" with other adults.
