Storytime: Bedtime

I'm currently doing a 2s Storytime at one library, and a 3-5 Storytime at another. So in order to maintain some sanity, I'm trying to pick one theme for both each week and adapt it for the different ages. Some of my 2s are REALLY little and some of my 5s are already in school.

Book Options:

Hush by Mingfo Ho
Night Light by Nicholas Blechman
Goodnight Already! by Jory John
The Going to Bed Book by Sandra Boynton
Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed by Eileen Christelow
Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney
Everyone Is Yawning by Anita Bijsterbosch
Good Night, Mr. Panda by Steve Antony


'Goodnight Sweetheart'
'All Around the Barnyard'
'Big Yellow Moon'

"Oh Me, Oh My"
At breakfast time, milk spilled on my blanket! Oh me, oh my!
Have to wash my blanket and hang it out to dry.
(Lunch/peanut butter, snack/banana, dinner/spaghetti)
At bedtime, cookie crumbs dropped on my blanket! Oh me, oh my!
Have to shake my blanket out, no time to wash or dry
I need my blanket, it's time for beddy bye!

Ten (bears) In A Bed

similar to this one at Making Learning Fun

2s Activity:
If you have enough, I love to use small stuffed animals and little baby blankets. Even if they end up running around with them, they are so cute trying to wrap the babies in the blankets! Have them practice putting the bears to bed, then waking them up!

3-5s Craft:
There are so many options for bedtime crafts! Unfortunately, I can't find the one I did for this but it's pretty standard and I'm sure you can find on Pinterest.

Similar to this one at Sunflower Storytime but I just use a piece of construction paper folded in half, and then one side cut down so it looks like a blanket over the bear. The kids can color the bear and/or add stickers to the 'blanket'.
