Ten Little Beasties


Check out my post that was at Mess for Less last Monday.

10 Little Beasties

At our house we often follow up a book with a craft. This time we read Ten Little Beasties by Ed Emberley and Rebecca Emberley. The story counts up to ten and back down to one. As we read the book the girls started to yell the number and beasties. You can also get a copy of a song to sing while you read the book.

For the craft what you need is: paper numbered up to 10, construction paper ripped into pieces, ten black construction pieces for the body, glue stick, and markers.

I passed out the paper. We counted to ten all together. Then Rose counted down from ten because she wanted to. After counting we started gluing on the ten bodies. Mary and I counted the bodies as we put them on.

After we got the bodies on we went about adding arms, legs and heads. The girls got creative and had fun with the different beasties they were creating.

Amelia was checking out Rose making her beasties a different way. Rose completed each one fully before moving on to the next.

Mary put legs on her beasties and always colored all the numbers.

Mary also had a fun time using the glue stick to glue more things on her paper.

After their ten beasties were made we re-read the story and counted along with their own pictures.
