As I had mentioned in a previous post, the theme unit for letter C has gone kind of haywire with our traveling. So I scrambled to find a few art projects to do. The first one is a cloud art project, the inspiration for this project came from here.
If I had more time to prepare, I would have drawn my own cloud shapes, but I was lazy! Luckily, the link has a printable. I had bought a pack of sponges from Hobby Lobby in the fine art painting section, so I knew I wanted to try to have E sponge paint the clouds. All I had to do, was cut out the clouds, and give her the sponges and white paint.
It's a little hard to tell from the photo, but the sponge effect was very pretty for the clouds. She also finger painted a few times with the white paint, so it has a cool 'swooshy' effect. Is swooshy a word? Well, you know what I mean!
Our second craft for the week comes from here . (Which by the way, I love her site, I hope to do a literature based preschool with E)
As part of our C unit, we read the Very Hungry Caterpillar, and this fingerprint craft was perfect. The printable was set up for creating patterns, but I know that E is too young to follow a pattern, so I had hopes that she would just make fingerprints in the circles to work on her hand eye coordination. This was a bit of a fail for us, as E just wanted to finger paint the page. Oh well, it was still good fun for us!
