Summer Fun Day 52 - Reading Props - Fake Mustaches
I'm up to my elbows in Vacation Bible School prep, this week. So, instead of planning crafts, or activities for the younger children, I picked up some props to set out with themed selections of library books, throughout the week.
The idea being, that the props draw the children to the books, and the books, besides encouraging summer reading, spark ideas for creative play.
Yesterday, I set out a couple of picture books...
...a short chapter book...
...and a package of inexpensive, fake mustaches.
They were a huge hit with all the children, older and younger, except for my T (my almost 16 year old), who informed me he didn't need a fake mustache, because he is growing one of his own - you just can't see it yet.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
