Welcome to the first official Homeschooling in the Garden State Summer Book Club!
We're calling it...A Book, A Craft, and a Plate with Kate.
This week the book we chose was Summertime.
The craft, making this Summer Book Club Scrapbook.
This is the front cover. I just put the supplies on the table, and Princess picked
what she wanted and used them as she wanted. I do not ever control the creative process.
That is just how I roll. Some children like to be shown how to do it, and so you may need to be more "hands on" if your child is like that, or is younger.Inside we put 3 hole punch paper so she can write about the book, and paste in photos
or draw pictures as she wants.The back cover..
We had these folders left over from when my nieces were in school, and the paper,
and stickers were all from Freecycle at one time or another. I love picking up raw supplies
like this for future crafty days. ;-)
The plate (or snack) were Popsicles we made like in the book..
Word to the Moms with younger children, make a couple up ahead of time
if you plan on doing this with your kids...sometimes they need instant gratification. ;-)
Doesn't it look yummy? That wasn't hard was it? Did you enjoy this book? I thought it was a nice way to start off our Summer Book Club, especially for
the younger set.Now that you have seen how it looked in our little corner
of the Garden State, care to link below, and show us how it looked
wherever you are? Be sure to check in with all the participants
to see what they got up to.Remember, this is about sharing ideas,
not competition. I hope you all participated this week..in one way or another.
Remember, if you have a book you would like me to use in an upcoming week,
just tell me the title and author. I'll do my best.Come back this Friday for our
next selection..I'm working on something special. (If my use of Mr Linky does not work, please leave your link in the comments..I'll add them here myself)
