Today we had an Elephant and Piggie themed preschool! My son has been requesting this theme for a little bit. We really love the Elephant and Piggie beginner reader books written by Mo Willems. You can find them on Amazon here. Check out Mo Willem's site here. We do not own them all, but as you can see we own many. We've been collecting them for about three years now.
My son has been especially interested in them lately because he has discovered that he can read the majority of the words in them and they have cute illustrations and fun humor. Here is a comic strip printable to make your own elephant and piggie scene.
Check out Pigeon Presents for more online fun! There is also a section for parents and educators that includes kits that have fun activities like the ones below.
We also made puppets. I did the drawing and cutting, and my son did the gluing. The idea came from here.
We've had a good time with these puppets making up our own elephant and piggie stories to act out.
