Feeling Spotty

Today was a warm up to the beginning of our Seuss Week.
We focused on a book not written by Dr. Seuss but is from the Seuss Reading Series
And it was one of my favourite books as a child.
I love the play with spots.
 So we joined the "Mad Dot Challenge" at 
The Mad Dot Challenge is based on the work of UK artist, Yayoi Kusama.
What fun it would have been to be part of applying the dots in her room.
But instead we settled on these white dishes
 I found to spot.
 The little dot stickers were tricky for the littlest ones to apply.
So I found bigger stickers that worked better.
After we spotted the dishes we spotted ourselves.
And our grown ups.
And our own drawings.
We also read another great book called "Press Here" by Herve Tullet
This is a fun, interactive book.
After you touch, shake or blow, the dots change.
If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend it.
It was a wonderfully spotty day.
