Preschool and Kindergarten Community weekly linkup

Leaning through literature has been one of our children’s favorite ways to grasp various concepts and have fun together. We started out with many of the Before Five in a Row titles and branched out from there. Through painting, crafts, creative play, and hands-on activities there are various ways to expand on a story and learn.  This week I’m sharing several ideas from readers that started with a simple children’s book.

Don’t forget to link up a post or two of yours and share what you’ve been working on with your kids! Here are a few fun ideas from last week’s linkup.

Purple People Eater Art

Purple People Eater

Have a favorite book your kids enjoy? Create an art project based on that story! Westword Blog shares a cute one-eyed, one-horned flying purple people eater project her daughter painted after reading Harold and the Purple Crayon.

Peter and the Wolf


Sometimes the best part of a story is re-enacting that story and letting imaginations run free. Happy Brown House shares a recent Peter and the Wolf activity her boys had fun with.

Puff the Magic Dragon Bubble Blower Craft

After reading Puff the Magic Dragon, Study at Home Mama created this fun bubble blower with her daughter – a great way to recycle too!

The Red Carpet Unit

A pile of blocks and a roll of red streamers helped recreate a scene from The Red Carpet and provided hours of fun and learning.
