The seasons have changed and we’ve taken inspiration from the author Marcus Pfister. You are probably most familiar with Pfister’s award winning book, “Rainbow Fish”. I think this book is required reading for all pre-schoolers. While in the library last week we picked up Marcus Pfister’s Hopper Hunts for Spring. Since we have been eagerly awaiting spring’s arrival this book seemed like the perfect choice.
We know that spring is just around the corner. This sweet book follows Hopper the bunny as he goes looking for “spring”…he’s a little confused and thinks that spring is an animal…not a season. Hopper got us thinking about all the little signs of spring that we have been waiting for and searching for. With my girls, I created a search for spring booklet printable (click the link to print your own).
Search for Spring Printable Booklet
Simply cut out each little page and staple the booklet together. Each page has something to search for outside this spring and a space to draw the object. I plan on printing off a few of these booklets and keeping them in my purse to have on hand when we are out and about this spring. We could even collect some of the items and tape or glue them inside the booklet. This booklet is a fun way to engage kids outdoors…take a walk in your neighbourhood and see what you can find.
Today’s post is part of the fabulous Virtual Book Club for Kids. Please, be sure to visit all the other participating blogs and see which Marcus Pfister book they read and what fun activities they were inspired to make.
