One of my all time favorite themes–books about things that get eaten! So many good books with this theme have come out lately. Bon Appétit!

Nanette’s Baguette was a hit. I thought it might be a little long but they were riveted. These are all fun reads.

For this activity I printed an image of a lion roaring on cardstock, laminated it then taped it to a small box with a hole cut out for the mouth. I did the same process with pictures representing all the animals in the A Hungry Lion along with bottle caps that have letters and numbers written on them.
Of course, we had to taste a baguette! Only one kid knew what a baguette was so this was a good enrichment experience.
Any activity that has kids up and moving is always a hit with our storytime groups. This bean bag toss/color sort activity was easy and free to make!
Until next time!
