This week at Pages to Projects we read, Not a Stick, by Antoinette Portis. This is a cute little story about a Pig and his stick. But is it just a stick? Not if you use your imagination!!
Our project to go along with this awesome book was stick sculptures. We set out all sorts of goodies to make our stick sculptures with. Colored pasta, beads, pine cones, yarn, paint and glitter.
The kids chose 2 sticks out of our stick basket and then painted them a variety of colors. Once both sticks were painted we used jewelry wire to wrap one end of both sticks together. They then added beads and pasta to the jewelry wire. When they had the wire strung to their liking we wrapped them around the sticks and tied them off. We also secured the ends with yarn by wrapping it around both sticks. Glitter paint was then added for sparkle of course!! The results were beautiful!!
Join us for our next Pages to Projects on 11/21/16 @ 10:00!
