|Izzie and Maddie sharing a story this morning.|
So I got clean sippy cups and off to the library we went. The girls were awesome at storytime, singing and dancing with Ms. Ophelia the librarian. I've been working on participation and we are slowly getting better at it. They still are timid with their joining in, but we are moving in the right direction. After story time we dropped in on Mom and Chris for about 45 minutes to visit and talk about story time.

I was cutting up the apple for the girls lunch, in such a way that I sliced the "cheeks" off the apple leaving a rectangular core. Izzie was watching this and she said, "Yeah, we don't eat that part, it's yucky." I told her yes, it was the part with the seeds. At that moment I cut the core in half and showed the girls the seeds and the "star" pattern that happens when you slice an apple that direction. Just as I was about to throw it away, I thought to myself, that would make a pretty pattern. An idea was born.
After lunch I quickly threw on some smocks, grabbed the paint, raided the fridge for any other interesting vegetable I could think of and set the girls to print making. They went right with the flow and had a great time making veggie & fruit prints. Both girls said the okra made their favorite print. And I have to admit, it's little flower shape was my favorite too!
|Apples, mushroom sliced in half, fresh greenbeans, broccoli and okra were our "paint" brushes for today.|
