Book bag!

Inigo’s school has below average literacy, and they are working hard to improve it. One of the initiatives is building a lending library of great children’s books that come with activities. They were going to put them in plastic bags, but I wondered out loud if they might look better in cool fabric, and was invited to have a go.

This is my “proof of concept” bag. The book is “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt”, and I have included a few games and activities I found on a homeschooling website – but no doubt the teachers will have something awesome worked out.

Now I just need to see if the teachers (and the kids) like it, and find a way to make about 30 more!
