stART/Biscuit and the Little Pup

For Christmas we purchased Selena quite a few of the Biscuit books, since these have always been one of her favorite independent readers. You are probably getting tired of hearing about our puppy, but we have had fun this week learning all about him, how to take care of him, as well as how to play and handle him. I had to do a art project with Selena to celebrate her new friend, Pal. We read Biscuit and the Little Pup by Alyssa Satin Capucilli.



Out of card stock I had pre-cut a large circle and some tear dropped shapes. I asked Selena to choose the color she thought most looked like her puppy and color these shapes. She decided we needed a little dark brown added since he does have some darker brown coloring as well. I helped her with that. We then assembled our puppy and attached him to a stick so that Selena could play with him.

  4. Nice craft! I admit that I am glad that I don't have to read Biscuit books any longer. The illustrations are so cute, but the text is SO boring!

  5. Oh, my little guy does love the Biscuit books- and puppets. We'll have to try this one out!
