Hello! I normally only post activities that I created myself, but these are times in which lots of fellow artists are pulling together to share free resources and activities for kids to do at home and I want to make sure all of you get to know about them as I come across them.
First up, the amazingly talented author and illustrator Doug Cenko has on his website several activities related to his wonderful books: there are free printable “My Papa is a princess” and “My mama is a mechanic” paper dolls, “Sleepy Solar System” coloring pages and, my personal favorite, a model to build a Big Cheese car from his book “Little Monster Truck Go!” . If you haven’t read the book yet, there are 5 adorable little monster trucks each with their own unique shape and personality: my favorite is the kitty truck of course, and I hope Doug will a model of that to the list too…. but for now, enjoy the Big Cheese template by clicking here and don’t forget to get Doug’s fantastic books (click on the names to be redirected to their page on Indie Bound).
