I came across stART a couple of weeks ago and liked the idea of reading and art combination right away. Our public library has a similar program every Saturday where children have a story hour first and then they do craft related to the story. My daughter enjoys it very much. This week I decided to participate in stART carnival created by A Mommy's Adventures. This week she has a fun craft, by the way.
Yesterday we read a classic children's book Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey.
The story has a great plot that children can relate themselves to. Two little ones - little girl Sal and Little Bear - get lost for a little while while picking blueberries which resulted in swapping moms and creating a comical situation enjoyable for young listeners.
We liked this story so much that we decided to make our own Blueberry Hill and the main characters so we could role play it. I made the characters by drawing them with colored pencils and glueing them to cardboard. Pumpkin and I made Blueberry Hill together. Cardboard, colored paper, hole puncher and glue is all you will need.
This is our Blueberry Hill with two moms and two little ones.
