Poppins Book Nook- Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

27
Apr

Poppins Book Book

The theme this month for Poppins Book Nook was “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles!”

We have had a super busy and crazy month with lots of sickness thrown in the mix.  So, we ran out of time to do anything new for this topic.  But, I decided to share some of the activities we have done from one of our favorite books.

The Polar Express

We used “The Polar Express” by Chris Van Allsburg back in December to do a bunch of fun activities.  I hope you don’t mind me sharing Christmas related activities in April :-)  Hopefully you can just pin these ideas and use them at Christmas time.

Of course, we read the book- actually we listened to the CD of the book.  Then we had a great time making some Polar Express trains.

Polar Express Crafts

Hunter made a train using different shapes.  He also sprinkled glitter on his paper.  While that was not exactly planned (ha!) it looked like falling snow.

Hailey used oil pastels to draw a train.

She colored it in using Christmas colors.

To finish off our Polar Express theme we had a party at the end of the week.

Polar Express Party

I used painter’s tape to make a railroad track on the floor.  We used some cardboard boxes from some of my online shopping to build a train.

Hunter and Hailey made some snow globes.  (Of course, they had to wear their pajamas for a Polar Express party.)

Hailey decided to make her snowman look like Olaf from Frozen.  They turned out cute.

Then they made a little graham cracker train.

Polar Express Party

It only lasted a few minutes before they started eating it :-)

Then it was movie time!  Hunter and Hailey took their seats in our train.

Polar Express Party

I punched their tickets

They also had little jingle bells, which we could all hear ;-)

Then I passed out hot chocolate and popcorn while they watched the movie.  It was a super fun day!

Poppins Book Book

As you probably know, each month I co-host a super fun book club called Poppins Book Nook.  Each month there is a different theme.  All of the co-hosts pick a book to go along with the theme and then come up with some activities related to the book.  On the last Monday of every month we all post about the different activity or activities we did throughout the month.

Poppins Book Book

These are the themes that we will cover during the 2014-2015 year.  So, if you come back on the last Monday of the month you will see how I decided to use the idea “Where in the World.”  There will also be a link up if you want to share any fun books or activities you used.  Plus, here are all of the co-hosts who will be sharing activities each month:

Poppins Book Nook- Presidents

24
Feb

Poppins Book Nook

The Poppins Book Nook theme for this month was presidents.  I asked Hailey which president she wanted to learn more about and she picked George Washington.

Who Was George Washington?

So, we read “Who Was George Washington?”  by Roberta Edwards.  This book is full of information and was so interesting to read!  Both of us learned a lot about George Washington.

Our Crafts N Things

When we finished the book, we made a George Washington wig.  I put a paper bag on Hailey’s head and cut the bag and stapled it the right size.  Then glued cotton balls all over the bag.

Our Crafts N Things

Hailey wrote a speech, pretending that she was George Washington telling all about his life.

Of course, Hunter had to be in on the fun and wanted to pretend to be George Washington.
