Every Thursday A Mommy’s Adventures does a really fun blog carnival every Thursday – read your child a story then accompany it with art!
My little guy turned 3 on Tuesday so I geared our Start towards his special day.
I read my boys The Growing Story by ruth Krauss
It’s about a little boy who grows!
Our art project was handprints! We used Model Magic by Crayola, my kids rolled it out:
Had them make it flat, pressed their handprint (1 for each of my boys), poked a small hole in the top so we can hang them on the wall.
Waited the 24 hours for it to dry then had them paint them
