This week on the Crafts on Sea Facebook page has all been about A Squash and a Squeeze crafts and activities. Julia Donaldson’s book is a lovely story for kids about appreciating what you have and is a massive favourite in our house, telling off the cow for dancing a jig is part of our bedtime routine! Today I’m sharing the A Squash and a Squeeze crafts which I shared as well as a few extra which I thought you might like!
Activities for Children's Books
Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs is a fantastic book, we discovered the series only a week ago and already it’s helped us with a trip to the dentist and we’ve learnt lots of new dinosaur names! All last week on the Crafts on Sea facebook page I shared blog posts related to this great story as part of my 6 Stories For Summer project and now I’ve rounded them all up so you can get all the Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs activities in one place!
Elmer the Elephant has to be one of the most classic books for kids, the whole series is so bright and cheerful and each of the stories has such a great message! I’ve hunted out the very best Elmer crafts for kids for you, the ones I know that kids will actually want to try and ones that they can actually achieve too! There’s lots of Elmer the Elephant early years activities and some cool Elmer printables in there too.
This week on the Crafts on Sea Facebook page I started 6 Stories for Summer, kicking off with Miffy at the Seaside. Each week I’m sharing a great kids story, with a craft or activity related to it being shared each week day. At the end of the week you get a lovely round up over here in case you missed any of them or you want to pin it for later – cool huh? I’ve added a few more of my favourite crafts and activities that are Miffy or seaside related too plus some fun sea crafts for kids as they were too good to leave out. So here we go with Miffy at the Seaside!
