After nap and snack...of mac n cheese n peas (evidence still on her face), I brought out some card stock, colored pencils, markers, a glue stick and cotton balls. I asked Mia what color the sky was and she said grey...we found the grey pencil and she went to town. Then she looked at the markers and wanted the grey one. She added spots. I asked her if they were stars. She said No. The sky is GREY, Mama.'...like I didn't know what was going on. Silly Mama.She looked up at the sky again, and added some blue to her drawing. Then she spotted the orange marker. 'mama the sky is orange now'. Hmmm not quite sunset now, but there's a sunset somewhere.
I asked Mia if she was ready for clouds. Her face lit up. Clouds?!?! I pulled out the cotton balls and we pulled them apart. Mia wasn't quite sure about all that, but she was THRILLED when I pulled out the glue stick. She glued and then pressed some cotton to her page. A few pieces stuck to her fingers, but in the end she was VERY proud of her sky.
Super proud girl
We taped our skies up on the wall. When daddy he came home, he looked at them and happily commented, 'nice grey skies, girls'...no prompting needed. Do you think the cotton was the giveaway?
Thanks Unplug Your Kids for another fun project!
