We had read the story a few years ago when the kids were younger, so we pulled the classic children's story of the shelf and reread it.
After finishing the story, I pulled out our oil pastels and began our art lesson about the use of pastels. I really wanted to encourage them to blend the colors to create a impressionistic feel. Children are so use to crayons and we all know that they do not blend.
We looked through a few books to see how to sketch a duck. We found directions on how to draw a real duck and a cartoon duck.
