Ideas are All Around by Philip C. Stead!

My kiddos loved this book!  They thought that the combination of illustrations and photographs was really neat!  They loved the cloud pics!
The main character is an author who has to write a story, but is out of ideas, so he goes for a walk with his dog Wednesday.  They have some fun adventures, conversations, and thoughts on their walk through their neighborhood.
It is a great book for talking about where ideas for stories come from.  It will be sure to spark some ideas in your kiddos!
My kiddos were especially taken with the blue blob illustration on the cover!
We decided that some "squish" painting was in order!
I got some blue paint and some construction paper, and we were ready to go!
The kiddos folded their papers in half, put some paint on the papers, then closed them and squished the paint around!  We got some lovely pictures!  This was also a good way to talk to the kiddos about symmetry!
Once they were dry, we added some details, then the kiddos wrote about their pictures!  A good time was had by all!  My kiddos were so creative with their pictures!

I have also made a little freebie, that would be perfect for a little homework assignment.  It involves the kiddos going for a walk!  You could also do this at school in the hallways or on the playground!
