stART - Katy and the Big Snow

A story + art= a great stART!!!
For this week's book, we read Katy and the Big Snow- a favorite from my Husbands childhood.... in it a great tractor named Katy helps plow out her city when there is a huge snowfall....she goes in what looks like a maze like formation....or at least that is what I took from the illustrations... A very cute story that Ryleigh now loves....

For our project, I had the girls drive around cars through paint to create mazes in the snow..... they seemed to really enjoy it...especially as they made up story-lines to go with their cars...


Getting ready for the project to begin...I had them use 3 different colors of paint...
Starting to paint...
This is around the time where story line starting popping up while the cars were being driven...
The finished project....

I love it when your (or hubby's) childhood books, make it into the lives of your own kids. My hubby reads "When we were very young" to Red Ted and Red Ted loves it (all other books need LOTS of pictures, but not this one...)

Nice craft too. Bet that was fun!!

Thank you for linking up!

I had forgotten about this book. It used to be one I read a lot when I was in the classroom

I wish we had been able to drive through our snow this easily.
