Children's Book Club {February}

I have been wanting to participate in Jess and Whitney's monthly children's book club. For some reason I have not been able to get my act together to actually do it {if you know me you aren't surprised by this haha} until now!

February is one of my favorite months. I love Valentine's Day, probably because of all the pink, but it's especially fun with kids! The book that they chose for this month was The Day It Rained Hearts by Felicia Bond. It was a really cute book! I have had it sitting out in our book basket all month.


Jack does not go to school on Wednesday and we usually don't have much going on so I decided that we would do our fun activities to go along with this book on that day.

I cut out some hearts and had Jack glue these fun pom poms on them to make a cute heart wreath. I then taped the hearts down on a piece of pink paper and let him go to town painting. Once the paint dried I pulled up the hearts and we had two different projects. We hung the individual hearts on the window and the painted paper in the kitchen.











I also cut a heart into puzzle pieces that spelled out Jacks name. It was a fun activity for him to take apart and work on spelling his name (Which he has down pat!)




Later that afternoon we created some yummy snack mix that we gave to Jack's teachers and some other friends/family! He had so much fun dumping all the bags into the bowl and mixing it up. We then used the measuring scoop to put it in mason jars!






It was a fun day for both of us and I loved getting to do some one on one activities with him while Graham napped!

This is such a great link up to follow along with. If you don't have a blog you can still participate and do the activities and read the books with your kiddos! I can't wait to see what next month's book and activities are!

  3. We made pom pom hearts like that last year I think and it was a huge hit. What is it with pom poms and toddlers, haha. Such simple things impress them! That snack mix sounds yummy - I've been wanting to try it with Mila every since you shared it before, but we haven't gotten around to it yet. Definitely soon! :)
