With summer in full swing, I was looking for some good preschooler summer books to share with the kids. I felt like I hit the jackpot when I came across Bats at the Beach.
First, it’s about bats — which earns me bonus points with my son.
Second, it is a really cute book! As the sun goes down, the bats prepare for their trip to the beach. The night is full of playing in the sand, roasting marshmallows (bat-style), and singing campfire songs, all written in a lovely rhyming scheme.
The kids both loved the book immediately. And I couldn’t wait to have a little fun with a few Bats at the Beach book activities.
Next, we dished out some bugs for our bat picnic.
They had fun rolling the die to see how many bugs to dish up. I added the tongs to make it a little more interesting and to help work those hand muscles to help with writing skills down the line.
