We really love ocean themes at our house. There is something fun about the various books that explore the ocean. Every year we explore more about the ocean during the summer. We really love reading different the ocean books by Eric Carle has. One of our all time favorites is A House for Hermit Crab (The World of Eric Carle)
Over two years ago I put out the Free House for Hermit Crab Pack. It has been a favorite for a while. I made these coloring pages as a request from someone. While I was digging through all the printables I found it. I thought it would be a fun time to post about them, since we just did our Playdough House for Hermit Crab.
I love to progression on the book as the story grows and develops. I always love to ask at the end of the book what they would like to put on the hermit crabs shell.
One fun way to use these is to print 2 per page on card stock and use them a stick puppets to help tell the story.
What you will find in these printables:
9 pages of Trace and Color with Beginning Sound for each picture.
Here are some other books and items we plan on using with these coloring pages:
