back to school pencil magnets

August 9, 2011

pencil back to school craft
So, we're still on our popsicle stick kick. Here's what inspired us.
pencil book
One Some Many by Martha Jocelyn and Tom Slaughter is a gorgeous counting book.
One Some Many
Slaughter is an acclaimed artist whose works are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art. I love the bright colors--so inspiring. In fact, Juliet started making pencils and ended up painting a picture of a flower and a bee from another page in this book.
magnets
We turned them into magnets. (Just like the ones from yesterday.)
pencil and cricket
We've been reading a bunch of "back to school books". This is an illustration from A Pocketful of Cricket by Rebecca Caudill (illustrated by Evaline Ness).
A Pocketful of Cricket
The Rattlesnake Who Went to School
The Rattlesnake Who Went to School is another fun one for back-to-school.
