Papa Fish's Lullaby- 31 Days of Activities Based on Children's Books

Today I chose the book Papa Fish's Lullaby by Patricia Hubbell. I like this book because it is illustrated completely with clay. I am just fascinated at the illustrations. They are so intricate and creative!!
After we read the book, I let my girls create with clay. 
First we talked about what they might like to make.Isabella decided to make a dog and Aubrey wanted to make a flower.

I gave them the clay and let them create.

I loved watching them...I confess that I was unsure how the finished products would turn out. 
I didn't help them at all so I was amazed at the results!
Aubrey created a flower...
and her name....I love how she made her name! :)
Isabella's dog...) It is wearing a sweater!
I was reminded after doing this activity that my girls are filled with creativity.

Sometimes I need to get out of the way and let that creativity come out!
