The Mini-Monet playgroup at Wintergreen started a new spring session. Each Friday, kids ages 3-6 years old and their parents meet to do artistic projects together. The art projects this session are based on books by Maine authors. The class began by reading I Met a Moose in Maine One Day by Ed Shankman. After reading the story the kids made moose heads! They cut out the pre-drawn moose heads with scissors. Then they traced their hands to make antler shapes and cut them out. The children finished by decorating their moose faces with crayons and googly eyes and assembling with glue.
The children also made Mother's Day cards. They used cardstock, crayons, and scrapbooking materials to create a one of a kind card. It was a great start to a new session.
