A great way to get inspired is to look at your children’s book collection.  I find this is one of the best ways to plan a theme based activity.

I have chosen “One little Penguin and his Friends”  because it has been one of the children’s all time favorite.  This interactive book  will keep children entertained by pushing and turning tabs on each page.  How they love to discover a little surprise on each page.

STEP 1 – Story time

Read and count the animals or subject on each page.

STEP 2 – Movement

Review the book backwards page by page, and imitate the movements of each animal.

1. Warm up by drawing and coloring an animal (or subject in your storybook)l in the book.

2. Make a collage by pre-cutting body parts animals for children to glue together. Put the animals aside when done.

3. Paint a background on a sheet of paper.

4. Use liquid glue to attach animals to painted background. It is okay if paint is still wet.

I love the blue igloo and the adorable penguin tilted to the right!











5. Use glitter glue to add some shine.

Look at all of the stunning layers! Can you see the glitter glue applied on top of the paint?










Nice job with completing the igloo! What a fantastic composition. Age 3 1/2.
