Eric Carle

We LOVE Eric Carle. I read about 4 or 5 of his books a day. Today we just happened to read Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See? So I pulled out the paint and we made some animals. Today's project was inspired by this cute template and this one too.

I just wanted to let everyone know that my girl really does think she is a boy. When she sees her big bro shirtless and in undies, she now has to be like him. She wanted Choo-Choo's and he was already wearing his McQueen undies and so if his shirt was off so is hers.

at first, they wanted to be at the table, but then they decided on the floor was cool too...
Then it was so much fun we decided to paint with our feet, yes our feet!
They looked just what they were supposed to look like...for now. I looked at my paint covered kids and took them upstairs. Gosh my little boys are cute:
They love baths anyway but when I told them it was going to be a midday bubble bath they FREAKED OUT!It was like..."you are going to let us play with the bubbles?"
They soaked in the tub for about 15 minutes while I checked on the wee one (that is N's new name for her) She was chill as always, so then we got dressed and picked our animals. Here are the finished products to add to my Wall Art Gallery in the toy room...

they totally look like his animals don't they?

I have decided that I am going to start an Art Group. I am going to do it on Tuesdays and today was my first project. Not all of them will be messy, but since I only had my kids we did a super messy one today. Hehehe. I have a ton on ideas but would love others so email me if you have any cool art projects let me know! Happy Tuesday!

  1. Ooh, I want to come. I love reading your ideas Valerie. We did the paint chip thing this morning and it's been a hit.

  2. I'm in love with your site...you are my hero, but I have been really curious...what does your whole art wall look like? If you ever posted a picture of the whole thing I would be so interested!

  3. I was interested in doing this project, but I can't seem to get the templates to open up? Is there a website I could check out? I'm looking for jungle animals?

  4. Hey, now that I'm commenting on every post, I thought I'd continue.

    This is so cute! I tried to click on the link for the templates and they didn't work. Is there a website to find them?
