In The Tall Tall Grass

I really like Denise Fleming's books.  I appreciate the art work and the simple text.
Today we focused on her book "In the Tall Tall Grass".  Last year we did an art project with this book too using ripped paper.  This year I tried to think of how else we could make the tall grass.  Hair combs came to mind.
But the comb didn't give a nice long stroke for tall grass so I pulled out a nail brush and it worked wonderfully.

After making their grass marks or for some before making their grass marks, they used little brushes or qtips to paint bugs and more.
