Friends Arts and Crafts
Buddy Paintings Tape two pieces of large easel paper together. Talk about what a "buddy" is...(a friend). The children can go to the table in groups of 3 to paint cooperatively on the easel paper. You call them "buddy paintings" because you paint them with your friends.
Games & Activities
Make a large collage box and a piece of poster board with the words "A FRIENDSHIP COLLAGE." The children come two at a time to the table and choose 10 things out of the collage box to glue onto the poster board.
Read Rainbow Fish and do a corresponding project because Rainbow Fish shared his shiny fins and made many friends.
You might also want to read Swimmy and do a project on working together and cooperating with friends.
Friends by Helen Heine
It is about a rooster, a mouse, and a pig. The story tells about what they do together as friends. (They ride their bikes, pretend to be pirates, go fishing, share cherries for a snack, etc. etc. When night falls they try each others homes hoping to sleep together. After several small disasters (ie. rooster gets his head stuck in mouse's door) they realize that the best place is in each of their own beds because...."friends can't always be together......but they dream about each other through the night as "good friends do." It's a delightful book, whimsical but full of great messages about being a good friend.
