For Storytime this week, we read the silliest stories I know. In The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by Julia Sarcone-Roach, a dog tried to tell his owner a silly story of how her sandwich disappeared. Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin gave tips about hosting a taco party for dragons. And my personal favorite, The Perfect Nest by Catherine Friend, was about a cat trying to get some eggs to make an omelet. You won't believe what he actually got! Aye Carumba!
To go along with the silly stories, we made a silly octopus craft. We made eight cuts on one end of a toilet paper tube, then folded them up to make the octopus’ legs. We covered the octopus body with collaged tissue paper, then gave it some googly eyes and a blue crepe paper head. We glued fruit loops to the octopus's tentacles. Pretty silly, aren't they?
