It Looked Like Spilt Milk (Story + Art)

 
As part of our water unit study I decided to do a little art project inspired by the book, It Looked Like Spilt Milk by Charles G. Shaw.  This is a cute book, in which each page shows a white image on a blue background that looks like one thing….but isn’t. I really liked the way this book got Dude thinking!

This project was super simple yet lots of fun! Basically Dude squirted some white paint on blue paper…

And we tried to imagine what the picture might be!

He actually made some pretty neat pictures! We decided these were: rabbits talking, a butterfly, and a plane flying through the clouds. Can you see them?

I found the idea for this fun little art project over at A Mommy's Adventure. She’s got lots more story related art ideas on her blog as well. It’s definitely worth checking out!
