Both my boys love these books: Alien Al and Dizzy Dragon by Priddy Books. My oldest now 3yr started out with the Alien Al book at age 1yr and loved it and still enjoys it. My youngest son now 1yr has really started to get to enjoy Alien Al. We just added the Dizzy Dragon and both boys love it too. There are 2 more books in this series and my oldest told me today we had to get those too! He said mommy and daddy needed their own book now that he and little brother had their own. Love the reasoning behind this,lol. These books have a cute story but it is the touch and feel as well as the lights and sound they have that grab the attention of my kids. We love books over here as many families do and always enjoy finding new ones to add to our collection. What are some of your favorites?
Here are links for some cute and fun alien and dragon crafts.
We did 2 crafts:
and a dragon
What you need for the alien: a Kleenex box or food box(we used a pop tart box, paper or paint,googly eyes, pipe cleaners, puff balls etc… to decorate.
What to do: cover the box with paper or paint, then let the kids decorate with the googly eyes etc.. Then you will have an alien!
What you need: a paper cup or tp roll would work, streamers, puff balls, puff paint, tape and hot glue gun.
What to do: cut out bottom of cup and tape in streams to make the fire. Then take the puff balls and paint on the eyes-let dry. When the eyes are dry hot glue the to the cup. Now you have a fire breathing dragon for the kids to have fun with!
He was so happy to touch the eyes, lol. He got one off the counter earlier that day that was wet and had paint all over his hands and it ended up in his hair:-) I found him with it and told him oh no it is wet, we don’t touch that right now. So when it came time to touch he was thrilled!!!
He really enjoyed breathing fire from the dragon!

All kids are different and only you can decide how you let your kids play. And with what materials you let them play with. My children are supervised when playing. Please keep this in mind with any post you read of mine!
