art class [15] Mossy Inspired nature day!

Remember when I told you about the book, Mossy (by Jan Brett)? Well, we were SO inspired by reading that book! We were inspired to make mushroom collages, create our own binoculars (out of toilet paper tubes), go outside and look at nature and collect things for our little nature diaramas, make pom pom acorns, paint a paper plate turtle, and pin a marker colored butterfly to foam in a scientist-like way! WHew! So much inspiration goin' on over here :)
