Last month our theme was Construction. We had our Tales for Tots at Sir John Franklin Community Centre. Here we read Hot Rod Hamster by Cynthia Lord. In this story the Hamster builds a cool hot rod. What I really like about this book is that it engages the kids, asking them to choose the type of car, the parts, tires and flames that they would choose for the Hamster! We got all the kids involved and they knew exactly what the perfect car for Hamster would be!
|This cutie wanted to be a construction worker!|
After we read the book, we had arts and crafts, like 'D is for Dump Truck'.
And we had sensory play too, using coffee, oatmeal, and beans to decorate construction trucks, or as my daughter calls them "mighty machines."
Looks like a playdate that your kids would like? Sign up and check out our calendar. We have Tales for Tots once a month. Hope to see you at our next Tales for Tots.
