Stars....they are beautiful! During our Science Center this week we closed our eyes and imagined what our lives might be like in the total dark. Then we used our imagination to see the stars in the night sky and how much light they give...even though they seem so small. We talked (very simply) about the properties of dark and light. I had my 'littles' put the black construction paper up to their eyes and tell me if they could see through it...."NO!" Then we continued on with our project, take a look...

(we used cork board pins, which fit perfectly in their little fingers)
The finished scheme was so pretty! I gave my 'littles' very loose instruction for this project...and every star turned out unique. We put the papers up to our eyes again...we could see through! And that's what light does, it helps us see. The best part was hanging the star papers onto the windows! BEAUTIFUL :]
We continued on with the Art Adventure of creating our own Blue Horse. I was absolutely shocked at how beautiful they turned out. I am always amazed by my 'littles' creations, and so proud of their efforts. It's just that, sometimes you're not 100% sure about how a project will turn out? So, it's a pleasant surprise when they turn out better than imagined! Here are a few to enjoy...
I hope you found our projects fun and wish you a very happy week!
