Stories and Light

My daughter LOVES to read.  She had a love for books from an extremely early age.  Don’t get me wrong, I love reading to her (LOL) but…. I wanted to give her some other options other than sitting with me in the big bean chair reading story after story.  We do a lot of felt stories that she loves.  I thought I would bring in another element that was even more interactive.

Mouse Paint.  A favorite in our house right now. 

I used laminated tissue paper and cut out shapes.  I am not the best artist in the world so bare with me!  What was nice about these was that she could put the mouse directly in a colored puddle and his feet would actually turn color!  :-)  
There were three white mice on a white piece of paper…

Stories can also be made up with all sorts of different shapes. We’ve done flowers, clouds, houses, and clothing for people that I drew for her.  So many options!

    another question…is she drawing on the plexiglass? It washes off fine? I am assuming dry erase markers…My plexi is white…I have been wondering if I could let them write on it without staining?
