Do you have Mo Willems fans in your family? We are huge fans of all of his books, but especially the pigeon books.
I found this adorable craft today via the Learning with Literature group Pinterest board.
With lots of other adorable pigeon ideas at the lovely blog it’s from, Diary of a First Grade Teacher.
And she led to me This and That at the Library, which had the printable to make the toilet tube pigeons.
The Learning with Literature board also had this adorable balloon craft from Shauna Lynn, along with a ton of sweet birthday ideas.
Even with their own cardboard bus!
So I went looking for some more pigeon fun and found this darling handprint paint craft at Mommy and Me Book Club.
And this idea for making hand puppets to retell the story, off of Pinterest (no link, just an image).
And another bus from another birthday party over at Two Little Birds and a Bug.
Then I found a Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive The Bus Printable over at Plants and Pillars.
Learning with Miss Jenny has two wonderful crafts, a popsicle stick puppet activity and a craft where kids can make their own pigeon and recommend what the next book should be called.
And then Coffee Cups and Crayons has this adorable playdough pigeon kit!
The Best Children’s Books has this tutorial for kids to draw their own pigeons.
And Libraryland has this neat printable pigeon writing activity.
(Best answer ever, Jordan!)
And the official Pigeon Presents has all sorts of other fun, from online activities to monthly coloring pages to an 8 page teacher’s guide and more (the Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! 10th Birthday Celebration Activity Kit is especially fun!).
I know what we’re doing next week!
