I cannot resist the dollar section of Target. It calls to me. It whispers my name. Lately for good reason- every season they have AMAZING felt pieces! I’ve scored candy canes, snowmen, cats, bunnies, and these super cute eggs. What I love about these is that I could 100% have made them myself, but the idea never occurred to me until I saw them.
I used them with Kevin Henkes’ new book “Egg,” which is why there is a teeny little crocodile inside. I also use a little bit owl with them when I read “Wow! Said the Owl” and “Night Owl,” but you could put anything at all inside. Dinosaurs, snakes, a platypus!
They work the same as the little mouse game (closed eyes, hide, guess the color), except we all knock on the floor and say,. “Mr. Crocodile, Mr. Crocodile, are you in the (yellow) egg?”
