I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas – This is a fun Christmas writing and art activity to do with your children after teaching the song, “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas!” (Note: You can still do this activity without the song.) Your children will brainstorm unusual animals that they might want for Christmas as a pet and then write and illustrate about it in this fun book!
I have provided different pages and ideas for you to use so that you can differentiate this activity for your class depending on their writing ability.
If you don’t want to use the animal writing idea, this book can also be used as an open-ended writing activity for your children to write about ANY item they want most for Christmas!
This packet includes the following six pages:
• One page of instructions
• Two covers (Colored and black and white)
• Two different styles of the writing page (wide dotted lined paper or regular lined paper)
• An illustration page
After the children cut out and collate all their pages, it is fun for them to share their book with their classmates and families!
I hope you enjoy this “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” packet!
