stART- Goodbye April...Hello May...

A Story + Art = a great stART!

We have read many books about spring... one of Ryleigh's favorites was Pooh's Favorite Things About Spring...by Kathleen W. Zoehfeld.... mainly because it was about Winnie the Pooh...

Although we did these projects a week apart- they totally go together... as...April Showers bring May Flowers... (hopefully!)... We made fingerprint raindrop/ Umbrella pictures (April) and handprint flowers (May)....who doesn't love handprint projects? I did both projects in the TSB (Tot School Beginnings) and Preschool classes.... I think they both turned out cute!

I had the kids (in both classes) decorate their umbrellas before we glued them onto the rain page...
Ryleigh making the finger print raindrops...
The April Showers pictures that Braeden and Ryleigh made...
Ryleigh's flowers....tulips perhaps?
Braeden...excitedly waiting to do his project...

So fun! I miss when my boys were toddlers and having them home -- I was always pulling out all the crafts stuff, paints, etc. They still enjoy all that but much more time constraints. Though I always try to make time for creativity, so vital to their development as well as inner happiness, I think...
