This month Amy Krouse Rosenthal is the author of the month for the Virtual Book Club. We’ve never read her books before but we have fallen in love!! Throughout the month we have checked out as many books as we could and we have enjoyed them all.
We decided to do a craft to go along with Little Oink. Little Oink is the story of a pig who prefers being clean but his family is trying to teach him to be a respectable pig – by having him make a mess!
For our craft we drew and painted little pigs. Royal (age 3) made thumbprint pigs. First we painted him thumb pink and then he made a few thumbprints on the paper. Next he used his forefinger to add a head to each thumbprint.
For Baloo (age 6) I found a “how to draw a pig” tutorial and let him draw his own pig!
(We used this one here)
Next we decided to see what it would be like to eat like a pig. I had the boys race to finish their pudding – the one rule was that they couldn’t use their hands! I was anticipating a big chocolately mess.
