In honor of Young Reader’s Day (November 12, 2013), I designed an easy craft that you can do with your family before or after you read the book and watch the movie on Netflix.
Materials you’ll need:
Craft block letters (available at Joann Fabrics or Hobby Lobby)
White craft paint
Photocopied pages from your favorite book
How to do it:
Photocopy your favorite images from the pages of your favorite book at an office supply store or with your home printer. (If the images are too big or too small for the craft letters, reduce or enlarge the size of the images.) Paint your craft block letters with 2-3 coats of white paint. Let dry.
Cut out your images from the photocopies and arrange them on the letters exactly how you want them to look. One idea is to tell the book’s story with pictures or words on your craft letters, or you can just place your favorite images anyway you like on the letters.
Then, using the foam brush, spread Mod Podge on the back of each image and place them on the letter. Wrap any paper ends that extend outsider the letter tops around the letter sides and unto the back, if necessary. Once you have glued all of the images where you like them, spread Mod Podge over the entire top and sides of each letter.
Let dry completely.
