stART - The reverse snowflake....

A Story + Art = A great stART!!!!For our story this week, we read Chaucer's first Winter....so cute...about a bear cub who is supposed to be sleeping all winter but was so excited to see the snow that he stays up to play with his friends....

For our project this week...we did what I am now calling the reverse snowflake....sometimes I come up with projects on the spur of the moment...with the best intentions...that don't always work out as planned... anyway...the reverse snowflake... I had the girls fold and rip designs in a piece of paper...(FYI...this did not go well...)...then we used the "template" to cover a second sheet of paper..then used different shaped sponges to put paint on.... All in all...I think they had fun...and they came out cute... but the project definitely took a turn somewhere... :-)

Ah reverse crafts are good good good - always good to salvage and a adapt what you are doing to what your kids want to do. Your reverse snowflakes turned out v fun

It sounds like they had fun making them and that is the most important part of any art project!! I will have to check out this book it sounds like fun. Thank you for linking up to stART :0)

Cute. My projects do that a lot; they always sound so much better in my mind! Great work though, girls look like they are having fun.

I agree - I have projects like that all the time, especially now when daughter really has her own ideas about what she wants to do and how. As long as the girls were engaged and enthusiastic, it was a success.
