Today is the first day of Picture Book Month! You can read more about this month-long celebration in my post here. Then head to your local library or Amazon.com and get your books!
Today’s theme is oceans, so we are reading “I am a Seahorse” by featured author Trisha Speed Shaskan. It is a great non-fiction book about a seahorse. She follows these tiny creatures through their lifecycle. The illustrations are amazing!
I made up a cute seahorse craft to go with the story. I started by printing this seahorse printable on blue paper. Then, I cut out the inside of the seahorse, leaving an opening in the middle of the paper. I also cut out strips of green paper.
Then, I let my daughter place small squares of tissue paper on the tape.
Once the tape was mostly covered, we stuck it to the back of the seahorse picture. I trimmed away the excess tape that was hanging past the edged of the paper.
We added an eye with a sharpie and my daughter glued on the green strips with a glue stick.
This craft also look adorable in a window!
