Mystery Box: Inside our yellow box, we found two muffins! Who likes to eat muffins? Yum!
Hold your muffin and turn around!
Put your muffin UP, put your muffin DOWN
Put your muffin down on the ground.
My little moose is funny and brown (do hands with antlers on your head)
He jumps quickly up! (jump up!)
And he flops back down! (flop down)
He bends to the left,
Then bends to the right (move side to side)
Then my funny little moose
Walks out of sight.
I adapted this moose from something I saw online. I printed the faces on tan paper and cut them out. I cut antlers from brown construction paper. The kids colored and glued.
We glued our muffins inside his mouth! So cute!
This was a long book, kind of hard for some of the kids to sit through. Not too many great real aloud moose books for very young children that I could find. I was interested in one on Amazon called Elusive Moose but my system didn't carry it and buying it myself was not appealing since I wasn't sure how much I would actually use it.
I LOVED the craft and my flannel board was great. I wish I had a moose puppet or plush animal for the Hickory Dickory Dock rhyme but the paper ones worked fine in a pinch. Kind of a tough theme book-wise but we had fun. I will keep this program on hand for my new story/craft programs on Wednesdays or my preschool visits where the kids are slightly older.
A normal size group for the early session but just a few kids for the later one. The recent snowfall made our already limited parking extremely tough so I wasn't shocked. Hoping for warmer weather soon!
