Happy Birthday Ed Emberley - October 19
Last year, we fell in love with Ed Emberley's drawing books when we celebrated his birthday. The step-by-step illustrations allowed my children to draw objects that they would have otherwise thought too difficult to try. I remembered enjoying Ed Emberley's Halloween Drawing Book that is full of lessons on how to draw skeletons, owls, witches, and other creatures. Our new house gave us the perfect canvas for celebrating Halloween with paintings inspired by Ed Emberley and this book.
|My son chose to paint a Frankstein on our sliding glass doors. We used Tempera paint and made sure to cover the floor with a sheet to catch any paint drips.|
|I held Ed Emberley's book for my son while he worked.|
|He was quite proud of his Frankenstein.|
|My youngest was napping when we completed this activity. However, when he woke up he was so excited to show me the skeleton (aka Bony Legs) and pumpkins in my painting.|
|Then, we had to find all the pumpkins and various other spooks in the book.|
