The boys love listening to a good book. I love seeing their excitement for a character like Corduroy or Clifford come alive. To extend their excitement and understanding, I search for a fun craft or activity based on the book we have read. This makes it fun for the whole family and provides a genuine love of literature that I want my children to have. I want to share a few activities that I have found that are based on children's books. Pick one, a few, or all of these awesome crafts to do with your children and watch the excitement come to life!
