"Paint" rocks with crayons. All you need are rocks and crayons! Go for a walk and find some rocks. Wash them and let them dry. Heat your oven to 225. Put the rocks in the oven on a baking sheet for 15-20 mins and while they are warming up, unwrap some crayons. Take the rocks out and put them on some layers of newspaper. Color the rocks with the crayons. The crayons will melt as they are coloring which creates a paint effect. Holding the crayon in one spot makes it pool so you can swirl the colors together.

The Napping House Activity that goes with Friday Story time for May 15th
Learn about porcupines! Listen to one of my favorite stories, A Porcupine Named Fluffy: www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpKqOO0Ax2Y. You can also meet Tumbleweed, a porcupine at the High Desert Museum in Bend and learn more about them: www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=334&v=eOcoYBUrCiQ&feature=emb_logo. Then make your own porcupine!
Mix 2 cups of flour and ¾ cup salt in a bowl. Slowly add ¾ water while you stir. The mixture will start to look like dough. Take it out and knead it with your fingers. Pull off a handful of dough and shape into a ball for the porcupine’s body. Break some spaghetti into pieces and stick them in the ball so they look like quills. When all the quills are in, push 4 pieces of ziti or penne noodles in the bottom for legs. Use peppercorns or small rocks for eyes and nose. Let the porcupine harden for a day.
