stART - Story Art

This is my first time participating in stART and we used one of Ellie's new favorite books, Tacky in Trouble. In the story Tacky, the penguin, steps in food like ketchup and grape jelly and runs all over an elephants tablecloth. I took 4 toy penguins from McDonald's kids meals and glued sponges on the bottom of their feet. We dipped their feet in ketchup, grape jelly, blueberry juice and spinach (red, purple, blue and green paint) to create beautiful art:)
