Star Fish Art

Last week, I posted about a book that we enjoyed titled Star of the Sea.  I didn't get a chance to post photos of the art project that was integrated with the literature, so I thought I'd share our finished creations today.

The book....
Star of the Sea: A Day in the Life of a Starfish

The art process....




The final product....



Artist: Sunshine- age 9


Artist: Peanut-age 7


 A little messy, but so much fun!

For those who missed my last post, here is the links for instructions....

Our thanks goes out to Superheroes and Princesses, who shared the idea of marbled painting with shaving cream. Her children made a reading mural after painting fish. We painted starfish for our activity. I cut them out after drawing them on old Manila folders. The kids made backgrounds on poster board for their sea stars, too. So much fun!


Be sure to visit Superheroes and Princesses for more detailed instructions. She has a link to another blog that featured fall leaves with this same method of painting- very cool!
