tearing it up

After thumbing through Don't Move the Muffin Tins by Bev Bos, I had the idea to give Avery sheets of tissue paper with instructions to rip!   She went to town tearing and ripping them up with all the energy she could muster!  It was fun watching her zeal, enthusiasm and concentration on the task!  Later, she stuffed the bits and shreds of tissue paper into clear boxes, bags and envelopes to see what they would look like stuffed with tissue and at the same time, explored capacity and volume of each container.

tree collage

Last week, Avery and I made a tree collage using bits of paper cut in the shape of circles and rectangles.  It was cute because Avery was really interested in pouring and transferring the bits of paper from one bowl to the other.  And slathering on the glue, of course.
