Today I Will Fly! (#StayHome with Mo Willems)

Counselor Corner cover page of picture book: Today I Will Fly!

Today’s story is Today I Will Fly! by Mo Willems, the author of the Elephant and Piggie books, as well as the Pigeon books and many more. Mr. Willems is an Artist and Residence at the Kennedy Center. While we #StayHome, he is doing a daily “Lunch Doodle” where he explores drawing, writing and making with kids from around the world and shares activities you can do at home. ❤️🦁❤️

You can watch videos and download the daily activity at the Kennedy Center’s Website or watch on YouTube.

Looking for more art activities? Head to Instagram. I have been enjoying the work of two artists who have been creating content for kids while they #StayHome.
