Craft
There are a number of good crafts to go with "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" on http://www.first-school.ws/activities/fairytales/3bears.htm
Other
Instead of a big craft at the end of storytime you can play musical chairs instead. Jose Luis Orozco has many good songs to choose from to play during this game.
Notes
Our bilingual storytime is done with two people. One reads the English version of a book and the other reads the Spanish version. We read the books page for page. This particular storytime may be better for 5 year olds and up.
