We did the nursery rhyme and story "Mary had a little lamb" by Iza Trapani
We asked the children "Do you have a pet?" and we graphed the results.
We made lambs using the shaving cream and glue mixture (2 parts shaving cream,m, 1 part glue). We added buttons for the eye.

We used eye droppers to drip white paint on light blue paper . The we folded it over and pressed the paper. when we opened it, we looked to see what it looked like. Some of the children then added more paint, and pressed the paper again to see how the image changed. We had puffy paint at the easel.
