Pigeons... inspired by Mo


My kindergarten friends and I have been studying the work of Mo Willems.
We just adore his characters, the way he uses speech and thought bubbles, his funny, detailed illustrations,... I could go on and on! 

Many of my kindergarten friends have shared that Pigeon is their favorite Mo character. If you love Pigeon too, check out this site:

We learned how to draw Pigeon by following the steps laid out on Mo's blog

After practicing on whiteboards, we drew them with oil pastels.

 I love that my 5 and 6 year old friends are drawing with such excitement and confidence! 

Check out these BEAUTIFUL PIGEONS drawn by my growing artists! I LOVE THEM... and have been thinking about sneaking them home to decorate our play room.
