There have been a few art projects done around here lately, which is unusual for our family. Some were assigned, some were spontaneous. This first one was part of our Geography lesson about Colombia. The three youngest colored the pictures of poison dart frogs, cut them out and glued them together, then glued them onto a leaf. The top one is Mr. Imagination’s, Mr. Sweetie’s is next, and Little Miss did the third one.
Little Miss laid out this pattern with crayons one day. She spent a lot of time working on it.
Another day, she got the school crayons and told me she was making squares.
Her next activity was to draw circles! I think one of her brothers drew the stick figure, but she can do stylized people herself.
This was another activity from Geography, this time from Ecuador.
For science one day, we dissected a flower and taped the parts to a sheet of paper. Mr. Imagination put his parts in the shape of a face.
This is Mr. Diligence’s. I didn’t get a picture of Mr. Sweetie’s; after I took the first two pictures someone suggested making a color copy of the pages to put in their notebooks instead of printing photos—what a good idea!
