Janna from The Adventures in Motherhood has allowed me to host Feed Me Books Friday this week. If you are not familiar with this weekly link-up, head over to her site to read more about it! Next week’s optional theme is Books You Can Sing Aloud i.e. Old MacDonald!)
Put me in the Zoo by Robert Lopshire is a favorite book of mine from childhood that Juliet also loves to read with me. It’s one of those books we never seem to get tired of.
I had some red sticky back felt left over from another project that I thought would be great for making some spots for Juliet to wear one afternoon.
I just traced some circles on the back and cut them out. ( I found this felt at walmart–in the craft section.)
At one point in the book, “Spot” transfers his spots to the children. I thought we could pretend that part together.
Juliet was more than excited to place spots all over herself “just like the book!”
It was easy and fun, but here’s what I didn’t think about: the adhesive. It’s not really meant to be removable. In fact, I think the point of this felt is so that you don’t have to sew it onto projects, you can just stick it on. So….it was pretty darn sticky.
Bad news for Juliet’s right arm (do you see that we placed one there?!)
I was afraid we would have a hard time pulling it off, (Have you removed a bandaid from a three-year-old lately? BABY TORTURE.) but it turned out to come off without any pain.
It came off the clothes, too, but left behind a lot of residue. Fortunately, I washed the clothes once and that took care of it–so no harm done, after all!
However, I would warn you to NOT do this activity while your child is wearing his or her nicest outfits. Make sure they are wearing something old, preferably cotton. That’s what Juliet was wearing and I was able to wash all the residue off very easily.
So, now it’s your turn! What books do you have to share with us today? Link up below and let us know! I can’t wait to see what you are reading! (Any post about a book or books is welcome!)
