The picture book Coco can it (Loes Riphagen/Gottmer publishing house) is very popular for children. Reading this book is fun to do, because it's an interactive book, where you can help Coco the bird to fly out. Because she's rather afraid to leave the nest so it's also a nice theme to talk about.
There are already quite a few craft tips from this little bird made here on Yoors and beyond, but we must not remember this craft tip of cardboard and paper. It's mama bird, which you can fold in half a coconut nut, basket or bowl, so that she really sits in her nest, and wrap her wings around little Coco!
The little bird (Coco) is the finger doll you get at the bookstore when you buy the book! Coco can be attached to a stick (eg. with Velcro), so you can replay the story.
This idea was submitted by Merel, but the credits of this Coco creation are all for Bianca Bosker and Danielle van den Hoff. They are Boekstart consultants in the childcare of Library Kennemerwaard. They like to bring Boekstart and the library to the attention 😉, so AT THIS! Feel free to take a look at http://www.bibliotheekkennemerwaard.nl
Because this fun idea can be shared here, now all teachers, masters, parents and caregivers can easily make this Coco yourself! The pattern is 2-piece you can find just below. Cut out, laminate if necessary and play! Isn't that super? Also nice to hand out at the daycare center!.
(Save the images and then print them out from the saved folder).
