Craft ideas:
•  Make a crown and decorate with things that princes and princesses do, paper flowers or jewels.
•  Design a castle or kingdom befitting a prince or princess.

*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!
