January Book Club Pals

***REMINDER to enter our GIVEAWAY — open until 2/9.***

Each month, we donate the book that we read to a community organization that supports low-income families and children. Along with the book, we include all of the materials, ingredients, and instructions for a child (or two) to recreate the activities and snack of our book club meeting that month in their home with their parent or caregiver. The organization will choose a family each month to be our “book club pal” and receive our book and activities. We are very excited to be able to share the joy of parent-child reading, playing, and healthy snacking with other parents and toddlers in the area. If you wish to recreate a similar bag for yourself or to donate, here’s what’s in the bag this month:

Book: Not a Stick by Antoinette Portis

Theme(s): Sticks and imagination

Activity: Make a popsicle stick airplane

Supplies: Two full sized popsicle sticks, half of a popsicle stick, four glue dots

Directions: Use one full-sized popsicle stick as the base for your airplane. Attach the other full-sized popsicle stick perpendicularly to one end using two glue dots (to create the front wings). Using the remaining glue dots, attach the half-popsicle stick to the other end to create the rear wings. 

Snack: Pretzel “Sticks”

Supplies: Pretzel Rods

Directions:  Pretend your pretzel is something other than what it is—and enjoy!
