Kids sparkle with this laundry list of great stories. Keep reading together and creating more Clothesline Capers as children improve their literacy skills.
Read a favorite book. Two good ones for this project are The Day Jimmy's Boa Ate the Wash and Mrs. McNosh Hangs Up Her Wash.
Draw pieces of laundry and clothing, such as towels, tops, and dresses, on construction paper with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils. Cut out with Crayola Scissors.
Retell the story by writing on one side of the cut-outs. Adults can write words that younger children request. Record the sequence of events, or retell your favorite parts of the book. Decorate each piece of laundry.
Cut ribbon a bit longer than the width of a large sheet of construction paper. Drape it from corner to corner so that it looks like a clothesline. Glue the ribbon in place with a Crayola Glue Stick.
Glue the laundry (in story order) on the ribbon clothesline.
