I absolutely LOVE this adorable book.
When I saw it in the bookstore a few years back I HAD to have it.
Today we read the book and did our project. AND, as usual, the kiddos loved it.
Here’s What You Need:
- 1 writing paper
- 1 piece black construction
- 1/2 beige/brown/whatever construction for face
- 1 small piece of black construction for eyes
- lots of white construction strips
No template here. Have the kids draw a circle for the face any size they’d like, same with the eyes – no tracers, no rules… just cuteness.One little girl’s version just blew me away today.
Check out that BOW!
Isn’t it super-duper, fantastically cute?!
Seriously, she came up with that on her own (of course all the little girls had to copy her after that!)
Yes, yes she obviously didn’t spend as much time on her writing as she did the bow – her artistic vision absolutely took over. I was so blown away by the bow cuteness, I didn’t notice the lack of words on her page until after I took the picture. I had to send her back to get a few more words on there.
If you aren’t familiar with this book – ya gotta check it out. It’s so cute.
The kids love to write about what their “mummy” does when they are scared.
Don’t ya just love it when the kids make the projects “their own”?!
