A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

Celebrate Reading with a Book Inspired Craft Round-Up!

March is here! And you know what that means?

It's National Reading Month! Tomorrow, we celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss and Read Across America Day! In my house, books are certainly something worth celebrating! And today I'm doing so by sharing a round up of a few of our favorite craft projects inspired by some of our favorite book characters! Enjoy!

Captain Underpants Popsicle Stick Puppet

If you have a kid who loves a good fart joke, this book series is for them! And it's among my son's favorites! These little puppets are a fun way to bring them to life.

Wimpy Kid Mask

Another of my son's favorites! We created this fun mask a few Halloweens ago, but it's fun for the Wimpy Kid fan ANY time of the year!

Simple DIY Truffula Tree

These are super simple for even the youngest of crafters...and so fun too! What a great way to celebrate Dr. Seuss, right?
