Book of the Month Club - January

Andrew's brother, David, and his family had our family for Christmas.  They gave us an amazing gift.  It was a "Book of the Month Club" for kids.  There was a bag for each month with a book, list of activities and a few items to go with the activities. 

For January, the book was Dino Train.  When I opened the bag and read the list of activities I was so excited to get started.  One Friday in January, we read the book after naps.  Here is our dinner that night.  Dino Eggs and Dino Chicken Nuggets. 
Here is our Dino Dig that we did after dinner.  I baked the cake mix with the dinosaurs in it.  We then got to eat the cake for Dessert. 
A few days later, we did the snack train.  Andrew cut egg cartons length wise for 6 "train cars".  I set out six different small snacks.  The boys take their trains down the table and fill up each car with their snacks. 
We also made a train tunnel that we could crawl through and played other train games. 

We loved the month of January and can't wait to see what February has in store for us.  Thank you David and Leah for such a wonderful gift!

Great post and reminder, and I fully agree - so true! Joining a book of the month club when our son was just 6 months old and reading at least 30 minutes every day for him was the best thing we ever did, as we clearly see that now he is far ahead of others at the same age. Reading everyday for your child is worth every penny!
