stART - Kiss it Better





Each Thursday A Mommy's Adventures does a great blog carnival. You read a story to your child; then accompany it by art. This has been a great addition to our curriculum. Since we're following the Hubbard's Cupboard curriculum for 2's now, it's actually already incorporated in the lesson plans, I just have to go find the books :)
 
This week, we read Kiss it Better  

 
which is a really sweet book about making it all better with a kiss and a band-aid. Good thing, though, that Kahlen is not obsessed with band-aids as I know some kids are, otherwise she'd be wanting a band-aid for every kiss I gave her! :)
This was the first day of our Doctor unit from Hubbard's Cupboard which I'll be posting more about after we do school tomorrow.

For our stART project, we stuck band-aids to a piece of paper 
 
and painted over them

 
I tried to get her to put more paint on the paper, but she just wasn't really in the mood I guess.
 
We were mostly successful :)
After the paint was all dry, we took off the band-aids:

That's it for this stART project!
What fun books are you reading to your kiddos this week?

My kids hate wearing band-aids. Sounds like a good book.

I LOVE the idea of using band aids for a craft!!

Very interesting idea, and it sounds like a cute book too. My daughter loves bandaids - any minor bump is magically healed with them :)

I ADORE the Hubbard's Cupboard curriculum- it SAVED me many a day when I was watching my three kiddos plus a couple more!

I've been reading "How Loud is a Lion" ...over, and over again. It's a board book (of course) with really neat artwork--they're sewn onto fabric and then they took photos or scanned them or something. That is a neat art idea!

And the bandaids didn't tear the paper when they came off?
My kids believe every imaginary owie needs a bandaid..... We go through a lot here.
