Winter is a great time to enjoy tracks. The builder has been learning about tracks at preschool, so we read Chapter Three in A. A. Mile’s Complete Tales and Poems of Winnie-the Pooh.
Targeted learning areas:
- science – animal tracks
- visual arts – stamp art
- literacy – alphabet letters in stamps
Do you recal this humorous chapter, where Pooh Bear is hunting a woozle around piglet’s tree home? The ‘tresspassers w–‘ sign that explain’s piglet’s grandfather’s two names? How the tracks they follow become more than one animal and that Pooh and Piglet are afraid they are following 4 animals?
Well if you’ve forgotten, go back and read this one with your kiddos. They will enjoy the suspense and might possibly get a little chuckle out of it as you do.
We used our stamps to make tracks and alphabet letters. It was a fun project.
additional stamp ideas:
- make your own potato stamps
- use pine cones, leaves, rocks, for natural stamps
- use paint instead of ink pads (add gliter perhaps)
What are your most memorable kiddo stamp adventures?
