One of the big events that we do at least 1 time each summer is a story time in the park. When we do these events, it is not uncommon to have 150 people at our story time. When we choose books, props, and flannelboards, we look for ones that we can make bigger so everyone can see them. This summer, we did a movement story time that included The Nuts: Sing and Dance in Your Polka-Dot Pants by Eric Litwin. Not only is it a great story, but the figures are pretty easy to make larger. We used fun foam and puffy paint to create our figures. As one person read the story, another danced with their nut to go along with the words.
