Our Monday Morning Project this week was soap carving. Our Five In a Row book for this week is Daniel's Duck by Clyde Robert Bulla and one of the art project suggestions was to do a carving. The children were very excited about this project because we have never tried anything like it before. We used bars of Ivory soap and a plastic knife. They drew a top and side view of the animal they were going to carve and got to work. Chelsea did a fish, Alex a whale, and Nick started out trying to do a duck and ended up with a camel. Anthony and Christian were too young to do their own, but Anthony helped. It was a fun project, inexpensive ($1.07 for the three pack pk soap), and easy to clean up.
