and an ocean tumbled by with a private boat for Max and he sailed off through night and day
Don’t ya just love it when an ocean just tumbles by?!
The boat scene in the book, Where The Wild Things Are, happens to be our very favorite part of the book, after the forest grew, the ocean appeared and Max sailed on his sailboat for weeks, and almost over a year. I think we all wish we could sail away on a sailboat for weeks (or maybe that’s just me ;).
As with every book we read I try to incorporate a little learning into the mix – Tangrams are our new fav thing to do! Tangrams are “a Chinese puzzle consisting of a square cut into five triangles, a square, and a rhomboid, which can be combined so as to form a great variety of other figures”. There are so many shapes & images you can create – truly the possibilities in where your tangram creativity takes you, are endless!
Today we created the many sailboats of Max, eight Sailboat Tangrams to be exact. And I’m positive there are a ton more ways to make many more sailboats designs!
Print out tangram template and cut it out.
Line up the cut out paper pieces on the craft foam and cut out craft foam.
I bet I know, you and your kiddo(s) can come up with a ton more too!
