Family Book Club -

I took a page out of Andrea's blog and did my own family book club last week with the kiddos.  I must say it was a huge hit and we will definitely be doing it again.

The book we read was The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and The Big Hungry Bear.

We made a strawberry craft (inspiration from here) to go along with the story and the kids had so much fun this.  Miss A especially loved putting the glue stick all through her hair :)

Ahead of time, I cut out the strawberries, stems, leaves, and the little white hearts (Brayden cut his own) This was a huge time saver and a must when doing a craft with littles. 

This kid - earlier in the day we went grocery shopping and they gave him a sticker and he chose to wear it on his forehead pretty much all day.

After our craft, we made a really yummy treat! Has anyone else had this? It's so so good and reminds me of childhood.

This girl loved the whipped topping most I would say :)

We can't wait to do this again!

  1. What a fun idea! I love the idea of incorporating a book into fun activities. I need to do this with Mila. And I've never heard of that book you chose, but it looks adorable!

  2. I always love Andrea's family activities! You did a great job with the family book club! The craft is so cute, and you can never go wrong with strawberry shortcake! :)

  3. I loved Andrea's post last week! Such a cute idea to have a family book day. This was a good choice... our kids LOVE strawberries so they would have been all over this!
