Dots and Triangles

The kids and I got out more books to go along with the “Storybook Art” projects. We just read this one.

On each page, there is a rhyme and a scene that uses a number of black dots as part of the picture.

The idea for a project given in “Storybook Art” was to create your own picture using a number of dots. Before I even discussed the idea, however, my son had a different idea…he thought we should do something similar, but with triangles! We brainstormed all kinds of triangle ideas from snowman noses and ice cream cones to the pyramids and jack-o-lantern eyes. We came up with over 30!

Here are the first pictures we drew.
