Emma made this darling little box with things she found around the house after reading The Kiss Box at school. I was intrigued, so we borrowed the book from the library. It’s an absolutely charming new book (published in December 2011) about a little bear who exchanges kiss-filled boxes with his mother so that they won’t miss one another so much while they are apart. The illustrations are adorable, and I love this idea! I think this would be a lovely back to school craft.
Emma filled her box with kisses, and now she has them with her always. I love that she came up with this craft all on her own – and executed it without any help from me! And if you’re looking for a book to help little ones cope with separation anxiety, this is definitely a story to read!
