Let your kids become their favorite book character on World Book Day!
On World Book Day, which falls on the first Thursday of March, children have the exciting opportunity to transform into their favorite book characters. To enhance the celebration for World Book Day, I curated a captivating Peter Pan-themed sensory bin that perfectly complemented our reading adventure with the timeless Peter Pan book.
The sensory bin not only engaged my kid’s imagination but also brought the enchanting world of Peter Pan to life. It was a delightful way to celebrate the joy of reading and immerse ourselves in the magical realms crafted by the wonderful world of books.
I also made a cute Peter Pan costume for Nate when he was 3 months old. I shared the process on Instagram, featuring a green onesie adorned with zigzag felt on the sleeves and bottom. It was a charming and simple way to celebrate the whimsical world of Peter Pan, making for an adorable and memorable costume for my little one.
How to set up a Peter Pan sensory bin:
- Round tray
