For stART, a story + art project, that we'll link to A Mommy's Adventures blog this week, we read the book, Goldie Locks Has Chicken Pox by Erin Dealey. Our book choice was due to the fact, that the one year old we watch during the week, currently has chicken pox.
Our art project was an extremely simple one. I made up a batch of homemade face paint, and let the children paint themselves some chicken pox over breakfast. Happily, our chicken pox will wash away in the bath - unlike the real thing, which our poor itchy little visitor will have to endure for a while longer.
Homemade Face Paint
- 1 part cold cream
- 2 parts corn starch
- add water to desired texture
- add food coloring to desired color
It's great to be a homeschooler.
