Page’s Corner’s StoryCraft Box™ wants kids to activate their imaginations through books and build literacy skills. The kit arrives with a wonderfully unique picture book, two crafts with a literacy tie-in to the book, enrichment activities, and website links. .
We tried The Big Orange Splot Box and enjoyed the book and crafts. (And I couldn’t believe we’d never read this fantastic book before now!)
Then, because the story is about about self-expression and design, the two crafts included were:
1) decorate a birdhouse
2) collage a dream house. (My kids drew dream houses instead.)
Case of Stripes
Come On, Rain
Gegory the Terrible Eater
The Big Orange Splot
