Then we read the book It Looked Like Spilt Milk by Charles G. Shaw. Each page shows a white shape on a blue background, with text following this pattern - "It looked like ________. But it wasn't _________." Then at the end it says that it was just a cloud in the sky. The kids had a great time naming the shapes (squirrel, butterfly, etc.)
Then we went back to the counter and made shapes with white paint on blue paper.
Overall a highly successful Art Tuesday. Some of the prints came out so beautifully I think we will frame them.
- Tempera paint
- Squeezy bottles if the paint doesn't come in them
- Newspapers for covering work surface
- Thick paper like cardstock, posterboard or watercolor paper (construction paper is too thin)
