25 Books with Crafts To Match

craft ideas for preschoolWhen I started No Time For Flash Cards I started it with the intention of trying to give my friends who were at home with their kids some fun activities to fill in their day. When I taught I would always link the book I read at opening circle time with our art exploration for the day. It gave the students focus and padded the learning on both ends. We didn’t hit the kids over the head with facts or structure but a little themed continuity went a long way in our exploration of the chosen topic.  After more than 5 years of blogging I have paired countless books with crafts. Consider this list of 25 a cheat sheet. I hope you find it useful.
