One of my favorite ages for kids is when they’re in preschool. I love the intense curiosity they have for the world around them! And don’t they love it when you read to them? My kids have had a love for books since they were very little.
One of our favorite books to read was Bread and Jam for Frances by Russell Hoban with illustrations by Lillian Hoban. We made a super easy and cute Bread and Jam for Frances Book Preschool Craft I bet your kids will love!
It only needs a few simple supplies and the kids will love helping cut the shapes and paint the “jam!” You can adjust your supplies by substituting glue sticks and cutting out the shapes for the kids ahead of time.
