Each year we make a poetry box for the boys. It contains a poem, often based on the theme of their birthday. This year A has requested a dinosaur themed birthday. Here is how we made the box.
First we covered a blank matchbox using a dinosaur napkin with decoupage glue.
On a piece of paper that could be folded into the box we write out a poem. We chose “Roly Poly” from the book “ Stomp, Chomp, Big Roars! Here Come the Dinosaurs” by Kaye Umansky and Nick Sharratt ( ISBN 978-0-140-56935-3). We decorated the poem using some further napkin pictures.
