We were totally buggin’ out at our last Story and a Craft workshop. Even if you don’t like bugs, you will definitely like I Like Bugs by Margaret Wise Brown. It’s a cute rhythmic story all about…you guessed it, bugs! The kids enjoyed the story, since it is funny, and gross (who wants to drink a bug?) and cool (who doesn’t like fireflies?) all at the same time. After we read the story, the kids made some bugs of their own.
- walnut shells
- permanent pens (we used sharpies and decorative markers)-
- glitter and other things to decorate (optional)
- googly eyes (optional)
It’s a very simple project, you’ve probably already figured out what you need to do. Use the pens and glitter or whatever you have, to decorate the walnut shell like a bug. You can make them funny, weird, mean looking – anything that you can think of. Don’t forget youcan use bits of paper to make wings, antennae or even teeny tiny legs.
