I feel so lucky to be teamed up with such amazing and creative mama’s to make this link up happen. We are all very excited to share, learn and see what others are up to.
The first book is a long time favorite. We fell in love with this fun story while Marissa was attending Pre-K and it is still enjoyed to this day.
The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything
One of our favorite ways to read this story is to make it an interactive activity. Years ago I printed off theses fantastic printables from Toddler Approved, Marissa colored them and I laminated them. We still use them every time we read the story.
A favorite of Emily’s is this music video that turns the book into a song.
She just loves the catchy tune and making up her own actions.
If ever a book was an instant favorite this would be the one. I grabbed this book at the library last week and I am pretty sure it has been read at least 20 times since then. I should probably look into picking up a copy for the girls soon. I think it is going to be a Halloween favorite for years to come.
The book inspired this random purchase at the Dollar Tree this week. The girls quickly named him Bones Hiccup Newman. Never would I have imagined them being so excited over a plastic skeleton.
Marissa LOVES reading this book to her sister and when she isn’t reading it Emily is doing her best to recite it from memory.
A q-tip skeleton is the perfect post story time craft for this book. Super easy and simple with lots of room for creativity.
All you need is glue, q-tips, construction paper, scissors and a black marker.
I hope you loved our simple spooky read & play ideas.
Happy October Friends!
