Stories and Light
My daughter LOVES to read. She had a love for books from an extremely early age. Don't get me wrong, I love reading to her (LOL) but.... I wanted to give her some other options other than sitting with me in the big bean chair reading story after story. We do a lot of felt stories that she loves. I thought I would bring in another element that was even more interactive.
Mouse Paint. A favorite in our house right now.
I used laminated tissue paper and cut out shapes. I am not the best artist in the world so bare with me! What was nice about these was that she could put the mouse directly in a colored puddle and his feet would actually turn color! :-)
There were three white mice on a white piece of paper...
Stories can also be made up with all sorts of different shapes. We've done flowers, clouds, houses, and clothing for people that I drew for her. So many options!
