Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother Too?
Yes! A Kangaroo has a mother just like me and you
This book by Eric Carle was the inspiration for our StART project this week. What I loved about our stART project this week, was that it was completely child directed. After reading this story and seeing Carle's amazing illustrations, Logan said, "Momma, I want to paint." So we created a crazy, messy painting
While painting, Logan said, "Momma, I want to make an animal." So, I got out the book, and we browsed and he decided to make a kangaroo.
Eric Carle creates all of his artwork as collages. I wanted Logan to get to experiment with this medium. So we dug out my old scrapbooking scraps and tore the paper up while the paint dried. (I even let Tyson play with the baggie of torn paper. He was quite fascinated!)
