Potato Prints

Today for Tot Art, we made potato prints. I am not a sculptress, so some of the shapes looked a little rough.

This is supposed to be a heart.
 But the end result was super cute!

P.S. If you do this at home, you hands will smell like potatoes for awhile. Also, triangles and squares are great shapes to start off with (the heart is a bit complicated, and I tried to do a star, but it did not work out).

The Little House

Yesterday for Book Worms, we read The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton. The kids who came had never heard it before! It's such a great story. Later, they made their own little houses. Join us for next week's Book Worms (Wednesday at 3:30 pm)--we're reading another Virginia Lee Burton story, Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel. That's a great story too!
