Eric Carle in Wonderland!!!

Eric Carle
We hope you have heard this name at home and have enjoyed his many children's books.  If not, check out our bookshelf to get some ideas for your next trip to the Library.

We spent the day imitating Eric Carle and the many steps he has to making his illustrations.

We used paint brushes, potato mashers, plastic screens, pizza cutters, cotton balls, forks and many other objects to make prints on our paintings.  This is a technique Eric Carle uses when making his illustrations.

With all that painting we had to clean up our mess.  We used the Sensory Table as our wash bin to clean all of the objects we used.
