Rock Band

Littles is pretty convinced she is going to grow up and be a rockstar, so what better way to get her started?
We did this one afternoon, and even mad a mini photo shoot for the band she named "The Lion King's of the Stone Age."
This project is a blast to do together, from finding the perfect rock specimens to putting the final touches on its personality.

If you're interested in other ideas including the use of goggly eyes, visit our paper project, posted soon!

    I really like this format. Consider adding it to your other activity posts. Even if materials is things like “a list of 5 photogenic locations” and not “material” materials.

    You might also consider adding “outcomes” that list the benefits of each activity in a succinct format: creativity, exercise, bonding time, learning your neighborhood, making friends, etc.
