Book Club Babes II member Miss Riley selected Mo Willems' Knuffle Bunny for our latest discussion.
A successful search on Pinterest resulted in the discovery of the Kids Activities Blog and the coolest activity to use as means of experiencing Knuffle Bunny. In preparation for the meeting, my squirts and I visited our favorite park, Droste Park in Maryville, IL. and took several pictures of the playground, walking path, and dock. At home, we converted these pictures into black and white before printing onto 8 1/2" x 11" paper.
When members arrived, they were allowed to choose from the scenes offered. Then, they drew a color picture of themselves, glued it onto the black and white page, and added a caption. Completed artwork was laminated so that further people, objects, etc. may be added and erased again and again to the picture using dry erase markers.
Discussion followed with each member sharing her journal picture and favorite part of the book.
For snack, supplies of bagels, thin carrots, raisins, peanut butter, cream cheese, and Annie's Cheddar Bunnies were provided by Miss Riley's mother so that each member could create her own Knuffle Bunny.
Next discussion: Miss Morgan's selection of The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear
