Using Your Imagination

I had such a fun group for the first 3-5 year old storytime today! I often tend to do themes that are more concrete, like frogs or pumpkins, etc. but today the theme was "Using your imagination"! They totally bought into it even if they didn't quite understand that big word.

As I was looking for books, I found so many great stories that would work with this theme:

 The classic "Grandma's Hat" rhyme had them all laughing as they imagined being a snoring Grandpa!

These are Grandma's glasses.    Make "glasses" over eyes with fingers.
This is Grandma's hat.   Place hat over head with two hands for a sunhat.
And this is the way she folds her hands   Clasp hands together.
And lays them in her lap.   Fold hands in lap.

These are Grandpa's glasses.   Make "glasses" over eyes with fingers.
This is Grandpa's hat.   Use one hand to place a baseball cap on.
And this is the way he folds his hands   together to rest cheek on
And takes a little nap.   Place head on hands, as if sleeping.

We also played a game where our stuffed friend Marvin K. Moonie and I called out different things the kids had to pretend to be. Examples: cat, rock, turtle, kangaroo, etc.

I've always wanted to do a unicorn craft for storytime so this was my chance! Pinterest find to the rescue:
