It's A Giraffe Kind Of Day

Maddie picked out a book all about giraffe's recently at the library and we have read it a lot! Today we decided to do a few giraffe projects to go along with the book.

Giraffe Bookmark

Maddie used her highly coveted dotters to decorate a yellow piece of cardstock which I cut into bookmark size strips.

Next up was gluing on all the pieces and spots!

Super cute and a perfect match to the book choice of the week at our house!

Giraffe Puppet

I found the pattern for this little guy at the best kids book site.

Maddie loved making her giraffe eat the leaves of her tree house!
