I can’t tell you how excited I am to be participating as a blogger in the Virtual Book Club for Kids this year!

To start off, for the month of September, we will diving into Mo Willems, and Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, one of our favorites!

Here at the Mama Miss house – any day we can dip our hands in paint is a good day!  While reading the book, Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, we decided the direction of our activity – a pigeon hand print!  The shape of the pigeon was screaming “HAND PRINT” at us :)

Let’s get started!

Grab your supplies

  1. Apply finger paint to child’s right hand – covering it fully.
  2. Place hand on watercolor paper, thumb up & fingers together, creating your pigeon.  Set aside & let dry.
  3. While the hand print is drying, punch out a 1” circle in the blue paper, a 3/8” circle in the white paper, and a 3/16” circle in the black paper.  Layer them on top of each other, gluing in order, biggest to smallest, creating your pigeon’s eye.
  4. Once hand print is dry, have your child draw a beak, wings, and legs on the pigeon with the crayons.
  5. Cut a small rectangle strip out of the white cardstock and glue to the pigeons neck.
  6. Cut out the hand print, trimming around the edges.
  7. Print out the fun little printable background I created here.
  8. Glue your pigeon hand print to the background printable.
  9. Using your alphabet stamps – stamp a fun little pigeon saying in the speech bubble, we stamped “hello”!
