One of my daughter’s favorite shows is Stella & Sam. It is one of mommy’s favorite cartoons as well. If you have not seen it, it is an adorable cartoon about a little girl, her little brother & two great big imaginations. Mai asked me if I would draw a picture of them for her a couple of days ago. I began to draw & when I was about halfway through with my Stella, my daughter asked if she could finish it. I gave her my drawing and watched as she drew in the hair and the stripes on the shirt.
As she was drawing, it reminded me of an art project that I used to do as a child. We used to take pages out of magazines or books & rip them in half and finish the other half. This is not a new idea, but it was always one of my favorites as a kid.
We printed a few different pictures last night. One of them, of course, was Stella & Sam. We also printed a Jack-o-lantern, a witch & an apple tree.
I cut each of the pictures in two & glued each end to a piece of construction paper.
It was no surprise that Mai reached for Stella & Sam.
She made Stella with green hair an ice cream cone. It came out adorable.
We both worked on one end of the Jack-O-lantern.
It was just as much fun as I remembered & it was certainly fun watching my girl finishing the drawings.
