Meet the Deubiens is a GREAT web site for instruction on how to make the caterpillar with balloons.
I'll go ahead and admit that I am a big 'ole softy when it comes to fingerprint and handprint art. (Now what he is all grow-up, I wish I had more of it from my son!). Our next little piece of artwork was so simple, but so cute - CORN!
We start out with our handprints -
blue was our color of the week!)! Easy-peasy!!! NOTE: You can also do this a little closer to Thanksgiving and make it into Indian corn by letting the children put different colored fingerprints on top of the yellow corn.
Our "Fabulous Fun Friday" was spent baking a color cake and since we knew there be NO leftovers, we made our very own birthday cakes to take home.
It is difficult to see the actual cake, but it is made from 3 different size squares (our shape of the week). The children mix up shaving cream, glue and food coloring to make our special icing. (There is no exact measurements for the shaving cream and glue. I try to use equal parts of both.)
We added our candles and lit them with our fingerprints!
We also had a wonderful time making our color tables, so all in all we had a great week!
Thanks for coming to visit us, I hope you pop back by again!
