    Sounds like a fun activity under the table 🙂 The book looks interesting too.

    That does sound like fun! I'll have to use that idea. Anything that involves making a mess is fun for JR and Asher. 🙂

    Have you looked at Laurence Anholt's books? I've found them pretty engaging with 3.5 year olds. The underthe table painting is always a big hit here too!

    Thank you Chelsea for the recommendation. We have read some of his books, but our library only has three of his art titles.

    That sounds like too much fun to pass up! I wonder how K would do as she's resistent to gettung herself dirty.

    We too have all of the Laurence Anholt books and the Katie books as well, and I am always looking for new books to share with my daughter. Thanks for the suggestion for Michelangelo. I buy most of the art books on Amazon, because they are super cheap there and my library system has a small collection and interlibrary loan costs more than buying the books on Amazon. I have found some great books on Warhol, Dali, O'Keefe and Sophie's favorite impressionists and a few others. I would be glad to send you the titles if you would like. What we do when studying new works of art is check out a youth non-fiction book and then a picture book (usually fictional about the artist). We typically look at the pictures mainly with the non fiction book, reading captions here and there, and then read the fiction book several times. I am sorry we have not linked up to you before…I always read and look forward to Tuesdays, but never seem to have time to get a post written about what we did during the week.Susan
