Unplugged Challenge - Square
With the holidays past and the snow outside making us feel settled and cozy - we eased into our first unplugged challenge of the year. If you are looking for a catalyst for your creative juices - hop on over to the home of the unplugged challenge and see what it is all about.
This weeks theme was SQUARE. LittleA came up with the idea to create a square hand puppet that she could use in her new puppet theater (post on this coming soon). We did not get past discussing how to create a pattern...so it has been moved to the back burner when we can dedicate some more time to creating.
In the mean time LittleA wanted to paint and so this easy re-entry project was born. LittleA likes to have us open up ms paint on the computer and make repetitive shapes for her to paint in with the mouse. So I decided to recreate something similar on her easel. I created squares in a variety of shapes and colors and then LittleA paint them in with her watercolors.
We talked about what defines a square as well as how the wax of the crayon resisted the watercolors.
This was a simple way to get the ball rolling again for our participation in the unplugged challenges. Want to join us next week - the theme is BALANCE.
