doodlebugs 3.5.10, fruit & veggie prints

the kids had fun at art group last week using a rainbow assortment of fruit & veggie stamps to create their masterpieces. it's always so fascinating to watch how the kids decide to approach the materials. this time, we had


stampers (gotta love the intense concentration evident in the thumb-through-the-fist and the tongue),


gamers (making a "maze"),


and tasters work their magic.

we used lois ehlert's "growing vegetable soup" for our book launch...bright, graphic illustrations paired with real-life activities (gardening and cooking) kids can engage in with their own families at home. after all that yummy painting, we shared an after-art snack of apples slices (yes, kids, we can eat these).
