Camping Read Aloud and Craft

With March being Reading Awareness Month, my daughter’s teacher asked that I come in again to share another story.¬†They are having a camping theme in their classroom, which made me think of this charming read, “A Camping Spree With Mr. Magee“.

It’s another great read aloud, with rhyming text and wonderful illustrations.

I wanted to do a craft to go with their camping theme – and this print and fold camper was too much fun to pass up. I found it as part of last year’s calendar of the month club from Curiosity. I did have to open it up in Photoshop to change the month and year, and while I was at it I cut and pasted photos of my daughter’s classmates into the RV windows (they are blurred above for privacy reasons).

I may also bring toothpicks and a bag of mini marshmallows for the kids to do some imaginary toasting.

Although I love the look of the armrests on the chairs, they are a little tricky to cut and fold. I plan to simplify them with the group, like the chair on the right.

I also love these fun campfire cupcakes from Parenting Magazine. I won’t be using these this time, but am keeping them in mind for the future!
