Craft ideas:
•  Make a story book about you and your brothers and/or sisters. What do they do to drive you crazy?
•  What do you do best? What can you do that no one else can? Draw a picture, and tell us about it.
•  The book lists lots of things that the brother does best that would make great contests--who's the best here?

*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!
