Welcome to the Virtual Book Club for Kids! This is my first time participating and we've had a lot of fun. This month's author is Lois Ehlert. We chose to read an old favorite, Planting a Rainbow. It is a fun book which celebrates all the colors you can find in a flower garden. After enjoying the book, we decided to "plant" our own rainbow.
Clear Contact Paper
Colored tissue paper, cut or torn into small pieces
Green strips of paper
I taped a large piece of contact paper, sticky side out, to our patio window. I then gave the girls the green strips of paper and all the tissue paper bits. They were to work together to create their own rainbow garden.
The girls loved working together to create this "masterpiece", as they called it. They made rainbow flowers, then added a sky, several suns, clouds, grass, and even a few seeds. It turned out beautiful! When the girls were finished, I turned the contact paper around so that the sticky side was on the glass. We've hung our masterpiece on the patio window where the sun can shine through during the day. And, when we're ready to take it down, the contact paper will come off the window easily.
