This is the first time that we joined in the fun at Open Ended Art by Growing By Leaps and Bounds. This week the theme was fall colors- red, orange, brown, and yellow. I pulled out paper of each of these colors and ask D what he would like to do with them. He, of course, wanted to cut, ALOT. He spent a good twenty minutes cutting shapes. My favorite part was hearing him talk about the cuadrados (squares) and how they have cuatro lados (four sides). When he finally finished making a pile of cut paper, I asked him it he would like to glue them on the orange paper and make something. He created the monstruo (monster) that you see below. Overall, it was a very fun experience and we will be doing Open Ended Art again!
