Craft ideas:
•  Pick a color of construction paper that describes how you love your Mom, Dad, sibling, etc. Draw on the picture why you love them.
•  Max was red, lively and excited; Julian was blue, thoughtful and careful. Pick a color of construction paper that describes YOU! Draw why, and explain to everyone else. Or, make hats of the color that's you, and decorate them to show why.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
