"Five Little Monkeys Play Hide and Seek" was our story today on the reading rug....they seemed to enjoy misbehaving monkeys with the babysitter Lulu while Momma was out dancing!!! I love looking into their eyes as they tried to guess where the five little monkeys were all hiding. Then we went into the painting session with a bright bright bright YELLOW. The 4 by 4 canvases had the backs all covered and were ready for painting with the foam brushes....then on to the next project so our paint could dry....Funny Monkey Faces from circles and ovals. The foam faces were the form and shapes and the colors were pure FUN! I was amazed at how many different shapes and forms they created with the loving help of their mothers and grandmothers. No one had the same face...hey that sounds like all the individual faces that were working in the glass studio. Then we returned to our canvas and chose a stencil and bright blue paint to create a jungle animal they have learned about from their Messy Monkey experiences. I took the time to stamp "Monkey Art" with the Staz On stamp pad ...this ink truly last forever! I was trying tp protect their small fingers from permanent stains! I hope you enjoy the photos!
Tomorrow I need to gather my materials and papers for an all day ART experience....at Dawes Arboretum for Arbor Day 2013! It is a very long day for me but the weather looks favorable and the children should enjoy making butterflies and watercolors!!! The whole day celebrates Nature and tress with a variety of tree climbing activities and crafts and Mr. Insect is performing. Of Course The Lorax should be there and visiting the families and delighting the children in Licking County!
YES I did add two posts today.....I needed to honor my Wednesday and Thursday circle of gentle spirits!!!!!!!
