Book-Inspired Christmas Craft and Game

Quiet Bunny and Noisy Puppy - Low Case b&d Match

Christmas Read and Play ideas! We have read a fun book, made a fun Christmas decoration, engaged in a fun creative play, and reviewed low case b and d letters in a process. Please, visit our letter of the week activities here: Creative ABCs.


Quiet Bunny and Noisy Puppy

Our favorite book of the season is "Quiet Bunny and Noisy Puppy" by Lisa McCue. This book is one of a series of beautiful books about Quiet Bunny discovering the world. My Firefly loves all the books in the series, and this one is no exception.

Quiet Bunny is alone in the winter forest. His friends either hibernate, or flew away - there is no one to play with! This changes when a cute puppy comes from a farm nearby.

Low Case b and d Play and Review

Since it's a pretty kid-made Christmas decoration, it's always up for a quick review of the initial sounds and object to the letter matching. Can the animals find their homes?


Easy Christmas Ornament Preschoolers Can Make

Kids were given Bunny and Doggy silhouettes and letter cut outs. The supplies we used are pictured below. We cut ears, tails, and a bow from felt, used pom poms for noses and a bunny's tail.


Kids also enjoy the extension activity: making silly faces and additional animals from the scraps of felt and all the supplies at hand.
