We usually get our books at our local Erie library, so be sure to check your own branch for great story time books!
Making Quilts Craft:
I wanted to go with the monkeys jumping on the bed theme, doing something like a Monkey Paper Plate or an Easy Monkey Face, but Miss Anne said monkey faces creeped her out. :) So, we did a quilt craft instead, which turned out really cool. The kids colored a quilt pattern (find links below) and then crinkled up the paper several times to make it nice and soft. When we told them the final step of the project, the kids just stared at us in disbelief. It didn’t take them long to really get into the crumpling and uncrumpling though!
