For movie night we watched 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, oh how we love that movie! Henry has gone on for days about "captain meemo" and his ship... the kids are fascinated by the giant squid and if you know them, you know it doesn't scare them in the slightest. They both say they want to be sea divers when they get older, I'm beginning to think we should be moving even closer to the ocean.
For our art project this afternoon we painted one of their favorite scenes from the movie - the Nautilus being attacked by the giant squid. We have sponges I taught them to use for their backgrounds, so they sponged in shades of blue as the ocean... Henry was so detailed and took a long time making it just perfect. Then we waited for it to dry and they painted their submarines and squids. I love how they turned out!
