What I did in storytime, Gulp!

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.

Lion Letter Gobble

 

 

 

 

 

 

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!
