The show Fixer Upper has seriously fed my I want a farm obsession…
Ben already wants chickens and the girls have been doing horse riding lessons.
I’m pretty sure that’s not our calling during this particular season…
SO instead I got them this book. hehe. It is so adorable!
I love making learning fun for my kids.
My goal this year has been to add more books to our shelves
and I love seeing how they have really taken off with reading
and WANTING to learn! Sienna read a whole book to me yesterday and
was SO PROUD of herself. It’s one of those magical experiences you get to witness.
A child putting all the peices together and realizng there is this whole world in books.
They just dive into these books and It’s been fun getting creative and doing fun activities together.
I made a Creative Learning Book Series where my kids
and I have combined our favorite things to do… reading, snacking and crafting.
We were inspired by our favorite Usborne Books and are sharing new videos every week!
The Farmer’s Market page is my absolute favorite.
The book takes you all around the farm…even opening up the chicken coop to see what’s inside!
Our snack couldn’t have been easier but it was a HIT with the kids.
I just got store bought pudding cups, crumbled up Oreos on top,
and put the carrot gummies I found at World Market!
They were something crazy like 70 cents after Easter! I always grab
up “themed” gummies if I see them. You can always find a good use for them. ;)
The Lamb masks were SO simple to make. and inexpensive. so win win.
You don’t have to go crazy when it comes to crafting with little ones…
kids like simple. Mine love masks or puppets!
So paper plates are a great craft product to have in the house.
I tried to do easy crafts in this series to make it very doable for everyone.
Paper plates and cotton balls are pretty cheap at the store…. then all you need is glue and
scissors and you are ready to make these fun lamb masks!
These would be cute if you were doing a farm birthday party theme too.
This book is just so adorable… it makes me want to throw a party or play date around it.
LOVE the beautiful pages. and when you are reading to kids, it’s
nice having a book that YOU enjoy too.
My kids used to get stuck on one book…and we would just read it over and over.
Since I joined Usborne and then recently became a team leader,
we are adding new books to our shelves regularly!
When my mom was last here she kept looking through them and was so
excited about what the kids got to read.
The quality and content are amazing…and I totally just ordered her the
Lift the Flap How do Flowers Grow Book we have because she
didn’t want to put it down. She needed it for Grandma’s bookshelves.
I’m hoping my kids get green thumbs from her. ;)
Ok. enough chit chat, here’s the video!! Enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by for another post
of my Creative Learning Book Series!
We are sharing more videos every week
so be sure to hop back over again.
I’m loving all of the FARM THEMED BOOKS Usborne has right now.
I have these on my wish list for Asher.
