Hello beautiful readers!
I’ve returned from a week long vacation at the shore to a full speed ahead week of teaching. While my two little lovelies are at camp, I’ve been busy teaching a 3-day Storytelling Art Workshop at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. My students are just so delightful and also full to the brim with creative ideas.
Yesterday, we made Story Puppets
And, this morning we made Story Maps, both from my book Show Me a Story:
I’ll post finished photographs of their puppets at the end of the week!
Now, to brave the hot, hot weather we are having on the East Coast while 7 1/2 months pregnant – A/C and lots of swimming have been the rule around here.

We are lucky ducks because The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art is a mile down the road from our home. It was pouring last Friday, so we packed lunches and met friends at the museum for some creative fun. While there, the children participated in the project in the art studio where they made their own flower gardens.
It was a simple, clever idea with florist foam for the base and all sorts of materials to stick in for the “flowers” and garden flora.
I love how the flowers tended to look like something from a Dr. Seuss book with over-sized, odd shaped petals and long, twisty stems. Their finished gardens were gorgeous and they’ve been brightening our space ever since.
Oh, and for those who are in the area, I’ll be running a three day class Storytelling Art Workshop at the Eric Carle Museum on July 16-18. Registration is required!
