Craft ideas:
•  Make crowns and decorate with brothers and sisters playing together.
•  Make a card for your brother/sister/cousin, tell them why they are special to you, and draw pictures of you spending time with them.

*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!
