Last month I started a baby/toddler book club with one of my mom’s groups. Basically, a themed play date. Our October theme was animals and everyone brought their favorite animal book. We also made hedgehogs by tracing the kids hands for the “fur” and paper bag fish. I failed to capture photos of the October one, but did remember to break out the camera today for our November “meeting.”
Today was all about transportation–one of Evan’s favorite things and it gave me an excuse to get crafty. One of the children has bad food allergies so I thought a way to get around that was to make individual food packages, so her mom could put anything she wanted in it and it would look the same as everyone else’s. That worked really well. I used the Parties by Hardie paper design from Evan’s train birthday party and made cones and pillow pockets to hold the snacks. I also downloaded a template to make paper trains from DLTK and we had a lot of fun with those–you can see Evan’s below. If you’re looking for a new option for a play date, this is a fun, easy one. Happy reading!
