DIY Children's Book Week Activities

Apr 29, 2024 by Alexa Bigwarfe, in News & updates

Reading to and with your children has numerous important benefits. It helps you bond with them, helps create a sense of well-being, develops cognitive skills, listening skills, vocabulary, social emotional learning development, and helps them develop language and communication skills.  

Additionally, research has shown that when children engage with physical objects, activities, or visuals related to the books they're reading, their interest and comprehension levels soar. That's why, at Purple Butterfly Press, we provide supplemental activities to enhance the reading experience with all of our children’s picture books.

Crafting, playing, and creating helps children deepen their understanding of the story's themes and characters. These activities connect the imaginative world to real life, and  help the imagination grow, often generating great discussions.  

We’re making all of our lesson plans and supplemental materials for our catalog of books available at no charge to our community! Simply  fill out the form at the end of this article and we’ll send it to you immediately. 

Happy Children's Book Week! We hope you’ll share your favorite activities with us, and feel free to post pictures of your creations and tag us on Instagram @purplebutterflypress
