It’s time for the Nature Book Club again! This month’s theme is eggs.
I found Chloe’s Eggs at the library a few weeks ago and knew I wanted it for this month’s book club. It’s a sweet story about a hen, Chloe, who decides one day that she wants to sit on her eggs instead of letting the people take them. She wanders around the farm in search of her eggs, sitting on some very amusing egg substitutes. (I do feel for her; she just wanted to hatch her babies.)
Anyway, I wasn’t sure what activity we could tie in with the book. Angie has been really into sewing lately, and she jumped at the idea of making a felt bag. I don’t have a template – I just cut out 6″x6″ squares, an oval-ish shape for the egg, and a chicken that Angie thought was a duck. Hmph. I didn’t even measure the straps. Winning at this crafty mom thing, aren’t I?
Angie sewed the bag while I read and she narrated. I think having something to work on helped her focus more, because her narrations that day were the best thus far. She was so proud of the end result.
