harold and the purple crayon


One afternoon, we read Harold and the Purple Crayon together, which Avery liked a lot.  Inspired by Mary Ann Kohl's blog post on enhancing literacy through process art, I glued yarn onto paper to create loops and swirls that resembled Harold's drawings.  Avery was excited to see Harold's scribbles come to life on paper and she colored in some of the loops.

I cut a couple of Avery's watercolor paintings (that she did a little while ago) into rectangles and squares.  She chose a colored piece of paper and glued different pieces of her painting on it, creating a collage of bits of watercolor.
