Before painting, Grace and I looked at the enclosed cards that had illustrations of common insects like bees, ladybugs, caterpillars, and butterflies with interesting facts about each one. Most important was how many segments and legs each had in their body and special color markings that helped us make our sponge painting creations.
|Grace liked how the flat boards turned into sponges|
when we dropped them in water. Then we looked at
each shape to decide how we could use it as part of insect art.
They give you plenty of supplies to make three pieces of art, but Grace got even more creative and painted her car!
