First, I put two blobs of watered down paint on paper and let the kids compare blowing the paint around on the paper with just their mouths and then through a straw.
When the paint dried, they used markers to add monster details.
|I love the high heeled lipstick wearing monster!!!!!!!!!|
Next, we used two kinds of pudding thinned with milk to do the same experiment.
Candy eyes and m&m candies turned the pudding blobs into monsters.
To go along with our scientific monster art and snack, we read I Need My Monster by Amanda Noll.
When a young boy looks under his bed to find his monster, he finds a note saying the monster is away for a week. The boy interviews several substitutes, but his monster is the only one that does the job right. We all enjoyed this book. I thought it might be scary, but the friendship between the boy and his monster is perfect to ward off any fears.
