This afternoon Elliot and I read Feathers: Not Just for Flying by Melissa Stewart and learned about all the things feathers are good for and the different kinds that birds have. A really nice book thanks to our local library. ⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then we painted feathers with the book as a guide. He started out with one but then decided to just have fun with it. I enjoyed the art sesh a great deal and continued even after he was done. It has been a VERY long time since I painted and even though I was a little rusty, it only reminded me how much I love doing it. I think I’ll keep it up.
After he was done with his painting Elliot cut out a blue jay for us to add to our nature journal. Now it’s time to relax and enjoy this rainy cozy Saturday.
