Kids Stories with Pictures of Winter Craft
After reading the book with my children, ages 2, 5, and 8, we pulled out their own baby books and made personal connections to the picture book. We talked about the season when they started to sit and when they started to walk. Then, we decided to make our own Baby Born!
Materials Needed for Winter Craft:
- White paper
- Scrap book paper
Directions for Winter Craft:
1. Tip the cup over and trace the rim on a piece of paper. This will be the circle for the head.
2. Cut several of these 2-3 inch circles from white paper.
3. Color the circles to resemble baby faces.
4. Glue the circles onto a piece of scrapbook paper.
5. Cut an oval out around the face to resemble a blanket swaddling the baby.
