Basketball Crafts for Preschoolers

Do you have a basketball fan in your house?  I have a few basketball fans (including my husband!)  We actually just put in a patio in our backyard and we put a basketball hoop on the edge of it so that not only can it be used for relaxing on our patio furniture, but we can also play some basketball too!   Today I would like to share some ideas of basketball crafts for Preschoolers. I love to display creative crafts around my home!  Before we begin, here are some of my favorite basketball books!
