Preschool Storytime Ideas
Families - People
This is the beginning of a long holiday season where families tend to celebrate together, making this a good opportunity to discuss family members. Be conscious of alternate family lifestyles when choosing books and discussing families, as many children live in single parent families, gay parent families and adopted families. For crafts, you could make fingerprint families: have children make finger prints on a piece of paper and draw eyes, nose mouth and hair on them to create faces for each person their family or make a family tree www.ehow.com/how_4840564_family-tree-as-kids-craft.html
