"The Snowy Day" by Ezra Jack Keats, provides a wonderful opportunity to teach about watercolors. We tried to make our own pictures using little pieces of tissue paper (different colors) glued together, then a layer of different watercolors brushed on top and another layer on top of drops of water (using a dropper).
The one on the picture was Caleb's favorite work. He titled it "The Colorful Moon". :-) This simple activity kept them very busy for a very long time....which is always a good thing....and we will also try this again...perfect for a rainy or snowy day. :-)
