Joe and I spent a couple days after completing our stART project reading about the fruits and vegetables mentioned throughout the book. In the back of the book are a few pages with in depth descriptions of each fruit/vegetable that you see in Eating the Alphabet. I also picked up some fruits from the grocery store that Joe has never had before, kumquats, mango and kiwi, and we ate them. He only liked the mango:-). I should have gotten pictures, but didn't even think to.
I did something a little different for our art project. I've had window markers for a couple years and hardly ever remember to pull them out. I decided to get them out (I was inspired by Christy) and let the kids have fun drawing some of the fruits and veggies from the book on the windows in our school/playroom. They LOVED this!!
Joe drew a watermelon, carrots, cucumber and banana.
**We also did a project this week based on the book Autumn Leaves, by Ken Robbins. To see this project, Fall Leaf Suncatchers, click here.**
