One of the most popular storytimes we do each year at my library is Pizza Day. You can make this a party, and serve pizza, or just do the stories and a craft. A simple pizza craft takes one paper plate. Then, the kids cut out red circles (pepperoni), yellow rectangles (cheese), and green triangles (bell pepper), and glue them on the plate to make a pizza. This craft helps reinforce the concept of the easier shapes.
