I would link this up over at Mouse Grows, Mouse Learns, but I’m not sure it counts if I read it to them………..
We finished reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and as promised watched the movie together.
And this time I actually made fancy snacks! Go me!
Pretzel sticks dipped in candy coating and then sugar sprinkled on them.
Colby Jack cheese cut into stars.
Gummy bears, spice drops, and jelly beans (in a bag saved from when the first movie came out, ages ago). The spice drops were deemed “too spicy,” and the jelly belly jelly beans were turned their nose up at (I forgot I’m the only one in my family who likes jelly beans).
Hopefully I’ll have more time to plan ahead, as in not 2 hours, and I’ll be able to actually find something more like “chocolate frogs,” for the second movie.
All of this equaled three happy kids.
We’re thinking after book 3 we’ll stop until they’re older and more able to handle the scarier themes in the last 4 books. Any suggestions of other books to read aloud?
