I love using treasure baskets to bring books and story time to life! A few carefully selected props can really make any story much more interactive especially for young children who struggle to sit still long enough to focus on the story!
Here’s what I used to create a Reindeer treasure basket:
- a flat basket
- Usborne ‘That’s not my reindeer’ book
- Bath mitt puppet
- a carrot
- sticks for antlers
- red felt balls
- a clear container with a plastic reindeer hidden in snow aka rice
Lots of sensory elements for a little one to fiddle with as you share the story together!
