Another quick, and easy activity to go along with Tanya Lee Stone's Sandy's Circus, A Story About Alexander Calder, is to take a virtual field trip, over to the Calder Foundation's website, to view some of the artist's wire portraits, like those mentioned in the picture book.
Then, give the children a nice selection of pipe cleaners to make their own portraits, and figures with.
It's simple enough for little hands...
...but has enough potential for exploration, to engage older children, too. You might even find yourself joining in.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
