The book ends by talking about how Lumpito appeared in some of Picasso's work, including The Maids of Honor. So naturally, we had to go look at the original painting, which led to a refresher on Pablo Picasso.
We wanted to do an art project, but we had already done Picasso-style self portraits. Instead, we decided to make our own version of Three Musicians.

The kids cut geometric shapes (being sure to use straight lines and angles) from construction paper in colors similar to the original. They glued them on to form their own musicians. I found the original idea here in Parents magazine.

This was a bit too complicated for The Bug, although he did enjoy cutting. It was a perfect project for Miss M.
