On Friday we revisited an old favorite: art with cars. Not too long ago we did painting with cars, (see the bottom of the entry here), so this time we colored with cars. I just put a little tape around a marker, put it in a whole of the waffle block cars, and secured it, then gave them a large sheet of paper on the floor to use. Like all art activities that involve cars: it was a hit.
In other news: here are a few links that I have stumbled upon in the last few weeks that have proved good reading.
