6 Books with a Matching Craft

Matching a craft to a book can make your reading come to life.  These activities combine a love of crafting and reading into something great.  After you read a book, make a craft to go along with it!  Here are a few to get you started.

Today’s best blog feature, Kids Creative Chaos, is sharing some of her favorite crafts that accompany a children’s book.  Make sure to check out her interview from this morning.

6 Books with a Matching Craft

6 Books with a Matching Craft

1.  Big Red Barn – This book is a classic and a favorite among so many.  Make your very own red barn with a few cardboard items.  Your little one will love this!

2.  Curious George – Make a yummy monkey snack!  Monkey’s love bananas and you can make it even more fun by smearing it with pudding and then covering with chocolate chips and granola.  Delicious!

3.  Daisy-Head Mayzie – Make a daisy hat so you can look just like the character in the book!  All you need is construction paper and a little imagination!

4.  One Tricky Monkey Up On Top – After reading this book, grab some construction paper and make your own monkey mask.

5.  The Kissing Hand – Make your very own kissing hand art with this recipe for edible finger paint.  This would be great for Valentine’s Day!

6.  The Rainbow Fish – Hang onto all your construction paper scraps!  Get them out and use the multi-colored papers to create your own rainbow fish.  So pretty!

Thank you, Lora, from KCC for sharing!
