MAKE YOUR OWN MAGNET AND COLORING STATION
H Download* the Perfect Piggies! pig-and-balloon pattern sheets and print them out in color on card stock (or another heavierweight paper). H Cut string into 3-inch pieces. H Help kids cut out the patterns and personalize their pigs and balloons by writing their names or initials where indicated. H Using a hole punch, make holes in the small circle at the bottom of the balloon, as well as the two circles on the pig’s body. H Connect the balloon to the pig with string. H Dab some craft glue onto two magnets; stick one on the back of the balloon, and one on the back of the pig. Voilà—instant fridge art! H Coloring sheets are also available as downloads.* All you need are crayons, magic markers, or colored pencils.

BARNYARD DANCE! HOEDOWN
H Download* the sheet music for the “Barnyard Dance”song. (The CD is available in the book and CD Rhinoceros Tap—or make up your own tune!) H Gather the children into a circle for a Barnyard Dance and hand out any music-makers (drums, shakers, recorders, spoons—get creative with home-style instruments!). You might teach the kids a few animal-themed actions (waggle hands for sheep ears, horse tails, rooster crowns, and chicken wings) and/or encourage animal noises when prompted! The dance itself is easy as long as the dancers listen to the “caller’s” directions.

BOYNTON BINGO
H Download* the Boynton Bingo cards and call sheet. H Cut up the call sheet and put the squares into a hat or bowl. H Hand one bingo card to each child (each child should receive a different card). H Assign a “caller” to pull out one call square, describe the image, and show it to the children. Use cut-up pieces of paper as bingo markers; kids should place a marker on the called image if it is on their card.

THE FIFTEEN ANIMALS! STOMP

H Have fun with repetition! H Invite the kids to gather and sit cross-legged on the floor facing an adult or older child, who will read the book Fifteen Animals! aloud. Before the reading begins, instruct the kids to jump up and shout out “Bob” when you point to them. (There sure are a lot of “Bobs” in Fifteen Animals!—hilarity will ensue!)
