To go along with our ocean theme for the week we read Eric Carle’s House for Hermit Crab. I chose this book mostly because we have it, but also we are huge Eric Carle fans in this house.
We did a House for Hermit Crab preschool pack by 3 Dinosaurs. Sofia enjoyed putting the cards in order of events. She first tried without peeking into the book, but she ended up looking towards the end.
I had Sofia paint a hermit crab and decorate its shell. You can find the printable here.
She did such a good job of painting in the lines. I was pretty impressed.
I think by the time she got to the hermit’s shell she was ready to be done so she didn’t decorate it as well as I thought she would.
There are more fun activities found here for the book that I would have liked to have gotten to, but we ran out of time.
