stART - week 1/25/10
This is a great blog carnival A Mommy Adventures starts every Thursday. Read your child a book & then do art that goes with it then link your blog up to her McKlinky. Lots of fun!
This week I decided to do something a little different. I am doing stART with all 3 of my kids! I hope that it's ok to do this for my baby, she is 9 months but she likes me to read to her so I am posting what I did with her for stART!
I read: Baby Einstein's Baby da Vinci My Body book to her. She loved all the mirrors in the book because she likes looking at herself - I don't blame her she is so stinkin' cute, I know I'm her mom & of course I'm going to think that!
To go with the book about our bodies, I decided to paint my 9 month old's feet. So with pink paint I painted the bottoms of her tootsies & made her footprints on construction paper.
For my oldest (4 yrs)
We read Chicka Chicka 123
We are reading this book all week & doing an assortment of activities with it - what a great book!

For my 2 year old we have been working on our colors so we read the Crayon Box Talked.
This is a nice book for kids who are learning their colors!
I cut up squares of paper, had Jumping Bean use different mediums for each color:
red - marker, orange - crayon, yellow - oil pastel, green - color pencil, blue - bing dobber, purple - water color, black - pen, white - nothing (plain paper) , brown - acrylic paint, gray - glitter glue, pink - paper mache. He enjoyed using all the different mediums. Then I hole punched it & used a binder ring - now he has his own color flip chart!
