I love using books as inspiration points for our craft time. So, it was really fun when Juliet grabbed a book and asked if we could make something we saw in a new book we just received to review for Tiger Tales.
Roly-Poly Egg by Kali Stileman is filled with whimsical illustrations with this red bird "Splotch" as the main character. You can see why she we would want to make her--she's a splotch of paint!
I went with the more literal interpretation and Juliet took some artistic license with hers. Pink was a better color and why stop at one egg when you can have two?
The story is cute and got us into the "egg" theme--I'm excited to dig out the spring/easter books and start some egg crafts.
Do you have any favorite spring or egg-themed books to recommend?
