We've gone and done it again. Another book club "discussion" in the books. This time, we tried to do less snacks and more talking, which worked really well! I asked a mama to lead the group in talking about the book and she did an excellent job!
The book we read this time was one of time travel and dinos. What's not to love? Since I kept this party a little more about the book, the food was pretty easy.
I purchased fruit punch for the "hot lava" and used my nifty round ice balls (found here) to freeze mini dino's in and drop into the dispenser. I used a green bucket for the dino toenails aka Bugles. The "something sweet" were super easy slice and bake sugar cookies, stamped with footprints from a plastic dinosaur toy. The cookie plate...I made! I'll share a tutorial on the next blog on how to make this super cute serving piece! And for the party favor (yes, of course I did one!), I spray painted mini dino's and baby jar tops and filled the glass jars with Sixlets...or dino eggs.
On the table, I scattered a few mini dino's and some temporary tattoos, another hit with these boys! The backdrop I used were felt circles sewn together with clear thread- thanks to my mom for this!
The boys had a blast reliving the tale from Mary Pope Osborne, author of the Magic Treehouse series. I cannot wait to find out what the next book is!
