Adventures in Storytime

It was our first week of summer storytimes and we had a full house and loads of fun! Kids, even the older ones, seemed to have a good time with this theme. Looking for more books? Check out my Construction/Building booklist.

I’m going to try to include a visual element in every storytime so I made a magnet set of the vehicles in “Macdonald” and plopped them on a magnet board as I read the story. After stories, parents and kids talked about and played with the pieces again. Double bonus!

Songs & Rhymes

“Shake Your Sillies Out” by the Wiggles

“The Elevator Song”

Humpty Dumpty

“The More We Get Together

Activities

The most popular stations were the craft stick houses on foam core and the bean table. If I were doing it again I’d do a second table for the craft stick houses and make an even longer streamer/bubble wrap tunnel.
