With the beautiful weather here, we have spending more & more time outdoors. This weekend we spent playing at the park, having dance parties in our back yard & gathering rocks for crafts after the sun sets.
We gathered big rocks & small. On our large rocks we painted landscapes. I painted a beach sunset & Mai painted one as well. She also made an ocean with one little red fish.
We had a bunch of smaller rocks & Mai suggested we make monkeys out of those. She helped me paint the rocks in brown for a base.
I painted the monkey’s face in tan.
I added googly eyes & painted on the rest of the facial features in black.
I painted on the belly in tan & added in a belly button.
I glued on construction paper ears & pipe cleaners for a tail.
Our daughter loved her cute little rock monkeys. She has them dangling all around the house. She loved them so much that she took one to daycare with her this week too.
