By Brandy Greer

There are many different kinds of crafts that you can use to go with a favorite book. Preschool Crafts for Storytime helps all children to further their connection with a story and can assist the teacher with craft ideas. If you teach preschoolers and would like some craft ideas, then learn how you can link books and crafts together.

Many children enjoy having a book read aloud to them. It gives kids the opportunity to have a break and just sit and listen to a story. When there is a craft after a good book, it can be a special activity that everyone will enjoy.

There are dozens of excellent stories that work well for young children. Some books are meant to be read aloud and will hold young kids attention, while others are not. In order to locate some ideal books, you can ask a librarian for a list of best sellers, or head into a kids book store. With a great list in hand, you can begin planning out your story experiences for children.

A great story time with kids begins with a fun book. When you are finished reading the story, try and ask the children some questions about it. As they reflect and think about the story, it will help them make a craft when the book is done.

When you read the story aloud to your group, you may find that the people in the story or the subject of the book can give you a craft idea. Take a look at what the people were doing in the story and determine if an idea can come from that. Or you can take the characters and invent a craft based on them, for example; if there was a baby in the story, you could make a rattle as a craft.

Preschool Crafts for Storytime are endless. There is no limit to what crafts can be found and put together. Building crafts can help children remember the stories they read.
