Valentine’s Day

We made a lion magnet out of hearts like the one in the book we read:

My Heart Is Like a Zoo by Michael Hall

Idea also came from Story Time ABC’s.  She made her lion craft into a lion stick puppet.  We used different shapes of hearts to create the craft.  I had leftover hearts that our volunteer had cut out for decoration in the library so it worked out perfect!  Check out my Valentine’s Day Theme for more ideas!


Snuggles, Cuddles and Bedtime

Check out my Snuggles, Cuddles and Bedtime! theme as well as my related flannel board Five Little Monkeys Jumpin’ on the Bed.  




 This is a simple craft that does not take a lot of time to assemble.  Draw and cut out a basic train shape out of stock paper.  Cut toilet paper rolls into 1.5″ segments.  Cut each “wheel” about half way down so that you have a slit through which to slide the wheels onto the train.  I was a bit concerned when I cut the paper towels into the segments and when I was cutting the slits–it looks at first like they will flatten out, but they pop back up quite nicely!  I had the kids color the train and slide the wheels on.  It was a hit!

For more ideas on trains please see my Train themed story time!
