In this charming story by Dan Santant, Beekle lives in a land of imaginary friends. He waits to be picked and watches as others around him leave one after another. When a friend does not come to find Beekle, Beekle goes to find his friend. This story of adventure and friendship stirred up our imaginations. We set out to create our own unimaginary friends. When the only directive is to create, it is amazing what the mind delivers.
What you need:
- Crayola Model Magic
- water colors
- paint brushes
- anything you imagine (feathers, beads, pipe cleaners…)
The children were given lumps of white Model Magic and were free to take items from the craft bin. The children rolled, smushed, poked, and glued. We used watercolors to add color because our Model Magic was not dry yet, but once cry it can be colored in a variety of ways. These stunning creations air dried for a week. Then they went home with their new friends.
