This activity was a combination of art and language. We gave the children a picture of themselves, colored circles that represented balloons, and glue sticks. First, the children glued the colored circles to their paper to make it look as if they were being lifted by balloons.
Next the children chose a spot on a road map to where they would fly with their balloons, and then told a story about what they would do when they got to that destination.
The art and language activities were combined into one to create a story with a cool visual to go along with it.
