Storytime: Henri Matisse

I have started adding action songs and rhymes to Family Storytims

(I should have skipped Henri’s Scissors – it was a bit too wordy for the attending crowd – and read Matisse Dance With Joy instead.)

Henri’s Scissors by Jeanette Winter
Oooh! Matisse by Mil Niepold

Matisse’s Garden by Samantha Friedman

We did only one activity, and that was making a Matisse-inspired paper collage. I cut out multiple shapes/negatives from construction paper for the younger children who weren’t able to use scissors themselves.
