After talking about a September event or celebration ask children to draw a large shape that fits the event or celebration (elephant, apple, honey jar). Outline the shapes in black marker and cut out.
To create a book, trace around the cut out shape to make multiple pages. Staple the book pages together and create your story using pictures and words.
