We had fun with a new art medium today. We explored making 3D sculptures with balloons and double stick tape. I got the idea from our copy of Storybook Art. This is a great book that has art project ideas that go with many excellent picture books.
Today we read Harvey Potter's Balloon Farm. I love the illustrations in this book. They are so imaginative. This book always brings out fantasy and fun in my children.
This was the kids' first time working with double-stick tape, and it took a little while to get the hang of it. They tried making their own sculptures, but they kept falling over. After a while they decided to work together to make a bridge. It came out well.
