The Very Hungry Story Time Hot

The Very Hungry Story Time

Yay, its toddler time!

Getting kids into the spirit of reading at an early age is incredibly important, so group reading events, where an adult reads a book to a group of children at your community is a great way to give back in a positive way!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

We chose The Very Hungry Caterpillar because it is timeless.  Not only will the kids at your community love it, but most of the parents will remember it from their childhood, as well.  In general, the book of choice for toddlers would be one that is not too wordy, yet at the same time captivating enough to hold a child’s attention and imagination. This particular book targets ages 2 to 4, and we love it because we found some great opportunities for crafts alongside the story!

Here is the Alice from Alice's Reading Room reading the story:

 

Getting crafty

Story time is always more fun when you can get the kids active creating something!  Here are a few options to get them involved:

Love this easy craft that is doable for most ages.  Just make sure to stock up on kid-friendly scissors.  We found this 12 pack for only $20.  (Although even with these, constant supervision with scissors is necessary)

I would suggest creating the leaves for the kids, and then providing different color pom poms for them to glue down, as well as the eyes.

How cute is this?!  Just grapes and a strawberry on a stick, with eyes to top it all off. 

A Recurring Event?

A toddler storytime and craft can easily be made into a great recurring event. It will help the children bond with other children of their age in the community, develop a passion for reading, improve motor skills through crafts, and also develop a sense of team work.
