A Story + Art = A great stART!The Very Quiet Cricket is written by Eric Carle. It is about a cricket who is born (hatched..or whathaveyou...) without being able to make a sound...he meets many creatures along his journeys...until he meets another cricket...then there is chirping... Ryleigh was not so into the story itself...but did like the illustrations.
For our stART project this week, Ryleigh painted with water color and then added sea salt...to create a unique pattern....as the pictures in the story are also uniquely patterned. As the sea salt dried the water color...it removed the color and created a very pretty pattern...and I am in no way biased....well....maybe a little;)
