Amazing Nature Party: Who The Special Guests Were

Hey, everyone! This is part 7 of the Amazing Nature Party series. In this part of the series, you’ll find the answers to the questions asked in Part 6. I hope you enjoy!

The party leader and the party guests added more expressions to help the special guests feel welcome, impressed, and have fun.

The people who were willing to give the Nature Party a try were a nymph, a sprite named Daisy,  a countess named Lavender, a king named Miles, a queen named Lila, and a superhero named Abby the Magnificent.

The party guests were very gratified and honored to have a king, nymph, countess, and superhero to be at the party. Here’s what Daisy said, “What a blooming party, this should happen every day!”. The nymph said, “What a beautiful party about nature!”

Miles said, “This is such an extravaganza! As King and wife to Lila, I would like to politely request that this nature party happens every day.” The party guests cheered happily at the demand.

Lila said, “I very much agree with Miles and everyone else at this party. As Queen and wife of Miles, I would also like to cordially ask that this nature party goes on every day.”

Everyone again applauded and cheered at the request and agreement. Abby said, “This is the most adventurous party I’ve ever seen in ages. I’ve also brought someone back with me you might like to see again.”

As soon as Abby said those words, the nature Fairy; her unicorn, and the Fairy Queen came out from beneath the tree. The Nature party guests as well as the Nature Party leader applauded cheerfully.

The Nature Fairy said, “Is there a wish I can grant all of you?” and the party guests, as well as the special guests, said, “Yes, the wish is that the nature party lasts more than a day and night.”

At those words, the Nature fairy summoned her mother who is the Fairy Queen to help her grant the wish. And so, that’s how nature gets along so well to this day.

That’s the end of the Amazing Nature Party series. I hope you enjoyed the series!

Amazing Nature Party: What The Animals Saw

Hey, everyone! This is part 4 in the Amazing Nature Party. I hope you enjoy! Just a reminder, some of these Amazing Nature Party series might be delayed for the holidays. You will read about what the animals saw in Part 4.

The animals saw incredible nature decorations and their eyes got wide open from seeing such majestic detailed decorations.  “Let the party begin!” exclaimed the nature team who helped organized such a wondrous and thriving party.

All the nature things said, “Yes, let the party begin.” All the nature things cheered and whooped. The animals sang while the trees danced. At 3:00pm precisely, they had a special visitor come to their extravaganza nature party.

Why did the nature things cheer? Why did the animals sing while the trees danced? Who was the special visitor? That’s the end of part 4 in the Amazing Nature Party. Keep your eyes open for part 5 of the Amazing Nature Party. Look at my other blog posts while you’re waiting.

Amazing Nature Party: The Big Day For Nature

Hey, everyone! This is the 3rd in the Amazing Nature Party blog series. You will read about Nature’s point of view.

The nature team prepared for the party. Meanwhile, Nature chatted about the party made just for them. They were all excited. “I’m so excited.” said the eldest bird. “The nature party will be held at 1:00 pm. The time is 12:50 pm right now. Shall we be on our way?” said the wisest old tree.

All the nature things including the trees and bird said, “Yes, we should be on our way. I agree.” So off they went to the nature party. When they arrived, their eyes were wide open with shock and surprise from what they saw.

Can you imagine what they saw? Anyway, that’s the end of part 3 in the Amazing Nature Series. Keep your eye out for part 4 of the Amazing Nature Party. In the meantime, read my other blog posts.

The Play of Art: History Of Art

Hey, everyone! This play will help you learn about the history of art. For those who like art will probably be interested in the history of art. You can use this play for school and other educational uses if you want to.

Narrator: Welcome to History of Art! Let the play begin.

(Princess enters from Stage A).

Princess (dancing): Nobody knew exactly when the first people started producing art but it is believed that art has been created far back as 100, 000 years ago.

(Strawberry enters from Stage B; Princess exits to Stage B).

Strawberry (smiling bravely): The earliest art work came from Africa in form of stone carvings. There are many examples of cave paintings and carvings from Africa and Europe dating back to 32,000 B.C.

(Princess enters: Strawberry moves to the right of the stage to listen).

Princess: About 9, 000 B.C., people began to change from being traveling nomads to settling down in villages. At this time the art began to evolve into larger pieces. In West Asia and Egypt, the first stone and clay statues were created and that is how artists began to create decorated pottery.

Strawberry: About 3, 000 B.C., people learned how to work with metals and began to create small pieces of art from bronze which was often small statuettes. This was the era when people in Greece and India began to create art and in Egypt, sculptors were large, lifelike stone statues which were painted realistically and were life-size.

Princess: The Dark Age which was around 1, 000 B.C. in East Asia and the Mediterranean Sea led to most people not being able to afford art. Artists stopped making their pieces for several hundred years.

Strawberry: After the Dark Age, it was in Greece that the Archaic and the Classical sculpture was started, along with the black-figure and red-figure vase paintings.

Princess: The Etruscans in Italy started to create large stone and clay statues as well as painted pottery they created.

Strawberry: Things changed when Alexander the Great conquered West Asia in 325 B.C. and people were able to travel throughout the empire. Ideas about art were exchanged and this lead to the first Greek stone statues reaching India with Indian sculptors following Greek methods to carve large statues of Buddha.

Princess: The rise of the Roman Empire spread Greek art to the West as well with artists in North Africa and  North Europe creating pieces of art in the Roman style.

Strawberry: This Roman time was when blown glass became a form of art. It was invented by Phoenician artists  and sold both to England and China.

Princess: In 200 A.D., artists began to experiment and moved away from realistic painting and sculptures to a more abstract form. Statues with larger eyes were to indicate that the subject has a strong soul.

Strawberry: There was a second Dark Age in 459 A.D. after the autumn in Rome. Sadly, not very much art was made for several hundred years.

Princess: In China during this time, they began to make new kinds of painting using a new invention that we use today called paper.

(Princess exited to Stage A). 

Strawberry: In Medieval times, art was evolving and showing the world differently. Christianity became a big theme like Islam did.

Narrator: I hope you enjoyed our play about the History of Art.

(Princess re enters through Stage B). 

(The narrator, Princess, and Strawberry all bow/ curtsy at the same time). 

The End.

Amazing Nature Party: Spreading The Great Nature

Hey, everyone! Remember the new blog series I started? Here’s #2 of the story. I hope you enjoy! Just a reminder that these new blog posts in the series will pop up anytime in the week (excluding weekends and holiday breaks). Did you guess the right answer?

As the leader wrote special invitations, the leader of the nature group suggested,”I got an awesome idea. How about we spread the great nature? Would you spread the news to our good nature-loving friends with the invitations?” and the group responded,”That’s an great idea. Let’s make it happen! Sure, we would love to spread the news.”

So the rest of the group set out to spread the news. The group leader began to spread the nature. After the group leader began, the leader waited for the rest of her group to spread the nature the rest of the day. The group worked all day and all night everyday and every night.

Can you guess what the nature group did after they spread the great nature? Find out in #3 of my blog series.

Lillian’s Paper Airplane Craft

Hey, everyone! Today I’m going to be showing you how to make a easy indoor paper airplane that flies far and upside down. Here’s a little info about it: This paper airplane was inspired by the book Championship Paper Planes by Paul Jackson. It can fly upside down, straight, upward, downward, and any other way you can imagine. Let’s begin!

Here’s a picture of how it should look when it’s done without glitter:

What You’ll Need:

Printer Paper
Markers (optional)
Colored Pencil (optional)
Glitter (optional)

How to Make It:

First, fold the paper hot dog style.
Second, unfold and you should see a crease down the middle.
Third, fold a large triangle along the crease.
Fourth, fold a smaller triangle on the other side of the crease. You should see that it’s overlapped.
Fifth, fold again. You should see the engine where you’ll hold it at.
Sixth, fold the triangles over to form the wings.
Seventh, hold it up underneath the crooked wings to make it nice looking.
Eighth, experiment and test the paper airplane.

Tips:

The crookedness gives the paper airplane power.

Try flying it in a room with not too much stuff in it.

Fold the nose (the tip of the paper airplane) down and you will see many more tricks and stunts.

Try coming up with a name for your paper airplane (so if you have a lot paper airplanes, you’ll be able to find it).

If you have any questions based on this craft, comment the question below and I’ll answer it for you. Thank you!

Enchanted Egyptian Beauty

Hey there, everyone! Remember all the years in the past,  when I decided to sell copies of the Egyptian Eye? I decided to sell the copies of my Egyptian Eye again this year. Here is a poem about it.

Triangular prisms sprout rainbows
From the tip of a triangle, triangles peak everywhere
Amazing colorful teeth pointing toward a catchy circle
It is an Egyptian Beauty!

I hope you enjoyed my poem!


About the Egyptian Eye:

I made this Egyptian Eye masterpiece when I was young. (I can’t remember what date I finished it and started it). Camilla mentioned that it looked like an Egyptian Eye. So the name became Egyptian Eye. I used the Egyptian Eye drawing in 2010 for raising money for getting to the conference in San Antonio, TX. I decided that it went so well that I did it for the conference last year in Salt Lake City, UT. It was a great success last year and I wanted to do that idea again this year for San Antonio. Find out more at http://lilliandarnell.com/lillians-art/ for the pricing. Thanks to all of you got a copy of the Egyptian Eye.


 

About Me:

I am the artist of the Egyptian Eye. I am a soon to be abstract artist of abstract rocks, paintings, and drawings. Find out more about about me in my About Lillian page. Thank you!
