Hibernation Station

We wrapped up our winter month with some study of hibernation and migration. One book Miss M particularly enjoyed was Hibernation Station by Michelle Meadows. It is a cute story about the hibernation train (made out of hollowed logs) picking up all the animals that hibernate for winter. Bear has to get everyone situated before they hit the hibernation station. The rhyming text and cute illustrations were a huge hit with everyone in the house.

To go along with it, Miss M made a bear hibernating in his cave.

First she colored the bear printout.

Then she glued paper scraps onto a paper plate to make his cave. This time she did the complete project with no help from me, including cutting all of the collage pieces herself.

I am linking this to stART at A Mommy's Adventure and Kids Get Crafty at Red Ted Art. You can see many great book ideas and craft projects at both sites.
