We are so excited to introduce the book It Looked Like Spilt Milk. When we asked friends and neighbors if they had heard of it the majority said “no”. This is a great book because, I feel, it promotes creative thinking. There is repetition that not only engages the children, but it makes it easy for them to respond. There are different shapes and pictures, but in the end what are the shapes? Read this book and find out!!
One thing we enjoyed doing was going out on a cloudy day. We set up a blanket to lay on and looked at all the different shapes of the clouds. It was fun to take the book, It Looked Like Spilt Milk, with us to see if we could compare the pictures. How many times do you lay down and enjoy the beauty around us? This is a great way to do that.
A craft we enjoyed was blow painting. This is the final product of ours. The top picture shows Little Chef K blowing through his straw to see what fun pictures he could make. The items you need include watered down paint, paper, and a straw. Drop the watered down water on the paper and use your straw to blow air through. Little Chef K had a hard time figuring out how it worked, but once he got the hang of it he started having fun.
If your Little Chefs start to get frustrated just get a paint brush and let them create their own pictures that look like “Spilt Milk”.
We hope you have fun creating different cloud shapes as you read and discover this new book.
