I Want to be a Lion Tamer Story & Craft

Are you as scared as I am when you hear the words “toddler” and “paint” in the same sentence? Well, I decided to give it a try! And I’m glad I did…with fork painting! Such a simple concept, right? Take a fork and dip it in paint. A fork is easy for little ones to hold and just maybe it controls the mess a little. The options to create are endless! I think a fork painting tree might be in our near feature.

Today though, we have to thank Crafty Morning for our lion craft. It was so simple and only a few supplies were needed – my favorite kind of craft!

I Want to Be a Lion Tamer Story and Craft from Jaime's Book Corner

Every time I attempt crafts with my little lady, I make sure I have everything cut out and set up before it’s go time. That way I can be relaxed and focused on having fun, even though there is sure to be some mess.

 

 

She had fun and so did I! I actually let her go at it with hers while I made my own lion. Being strapped into the high chair might have made that possible.

After clean up, it was story time! Here’s a look inside I Want to Be a Lion Tamer:

If you make this craft or love this book, it would make my day to hear about it! Feel free to share in the comments.

I’m a Dirty Dinosaur

I'm a Dirty Dinosaur

I’ll be completely honest with you, I didn’t see the allure of I’m a Dirty Dinosaur at first. Well, apparently Ava was just a little too young when we first read it because now she LOVES it! And of course, that means I love it too.

She smiles so big and dances side to side along with the sing-song words. I’m a Dirty Dinosaur has fun illustrations made from real mud and exciting action words in the story kids can even play out, like stomp, stomp, stomp!

This is now one of our favorite read-alouds that we own and it always comes down from the shelf when Ava’s wearing her dino PJs. We ended up reading it 3 times in a row last week!

We will probably have the follow-up book, I’m a Hungry Dinosaur, in our collection sooner than later.

Are you there little fox?

Are you there little fox?

This book never fails to put me in a good mood. It takes us on a journey to find little fox and I often find myself reading it in a silly voice. You think you’re going to see little fox on the next page, but no! Those ears are bat ears, that little tail was actually a squirrel!!!

We also offer an elephant and bunny version in this series. Why is fox my favorite? Because he ends up with mama at the end! (Elephant is with daddy and bunny is with his friends, in case you were wondering). We read this book quite often, both enjoying the moment of fun it offers. It’s one Ava likes to flip through more than once, I’m guessing she loves the bright colors.

Peek Inside the Zoo

Peek Inside the Zoo

This is one of the newer additions to our home library. Although Ava is probably just a little young for it still, she definitely loves it already! We just sit with her until she’s a little more gentle, we don’t want any ripped gorilla arms around here.

The beautiful illustrations in our Peek Inside series include cutouts, peek-throughs, and flaps for children to interact with as you read. The flaps are sturdy and each page is packed full of information, making learning about the animals so much fun for little ones. Peek under leaves and behind doors to find noisy parrots, cheeky monkeys, very tall giraffes and lots more.

You can also Peek Inside animal homes, a tree, dinosaurs, nighttime, space, the farm, garden, the jungle, and the sea! We also offer our beautiful Peek Inside Fairy Tales for just a few dollars more – Beauty & the Beast, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty and coming soon – Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs, and the Nutcracker.
