Book + Craft – Read it then Make it!
That is exactly what this week is all about.
Reading books and making a craft or getting involved in an art project that is linked to a story is such a wonderful way to engage with children! Crafts bring the book or story alive, and the story adds meaning to the Art!
We have brought together some wonderful bloggers and creators and together we are building a list of 50 + ideas for you to read together and then make together!
