International Picnic Day!
Today is International Picnic Day, so we will be reading
about picnics and hopefully doing a craft or two about
picnics, and for dinner, we will go on a picnic!
If you would like another great site for ideas just click here.
It wouldn't be Monday if I didn't post about a few books we're reading
Here are some great "picnic" themed books:
We're going on a Picnic by Pat Hutchins
very cute story about Hen,Duck and Goose looking for a good picnic spot
because ,"It's such a lovely day!"
Picnic at Mudsock Meadow by Patricia Polacco
This book is about the kids of Mudsock Meadow and their annual Halloween picnic.
Princess enjoys Halloween, so the seasonal difference was fine with her.
The Rattlebang P I C N I C by Margaret Mahy with pictures by Steven Kellogg
a really fun story filled with great illustrations..made us want to get into our old rattlebang
and find a good picnic spot!
The BEST Picnic Ever by Clare Jarrett
has wonderful illustrations done in colored pencil and a lively story about what happens when a little boy goes to the park with his Mom for a picnic and says" I wish I had someone to play with"....
Now I need to go pack up our picnic basket ....
