Elephant and piggie birthday book
Elephant and Piggie Birthday Party - Parenting the PrincipalOur mom instilled in us a love for reading and books at a very young age. Reading to our kids everyday is such a bonding experience. Poppy loves hearing the adventures of these adorable characters and Calla and Harper loved reading the series as early readers. The girls went crazy! Decorations are always a fun part of a party. The girls helped decorate for the little party. Harper made the hanging lanterns and was so proud of her decor!
I Am Invited to a Party! (An Elephant and Piggie Book)
I wrapped up a book for each of them, set out a snack and strung up some decorations. We colored and did activities and then read all the books on the couch! A new beginning-reader series created by Mo Willems! The Good for Nothing Button book was the first one they all dove into today! A button was also included in our box of goodies.
CRITICS HAVE SAID
What is not to love about the adorable duo full of expression and humor? Then I used Canva to create invitations for her. I used the very thick poster board from the dollar store and pieces it together. With an exact-o knife, I cut out a rectangle for our faces to peek through. I covered the poster board with paper and then cut out and glued the words to complete the look.
Either way, I have some hard news. This series is coming to an end. But the good news is that the final book, The Thank You Book is a gem. If you love this series as much as I do and boy do I love it! But I admit I had a hard time reading the final few pages.
So, of course, we were so excited to partner with Disney-Hyperion on a sponsored post to celebrate 10 years of the series! Ten years of these adorable and relatable friends teaching kids not only how to read, but also how to be a good friend and how to handle difficult emotions. In fact, Disney-Hyperion sent me a party pack and we used it to throw ourselves a little party. Spoiler alert, the good for nothing button is actually good for something! Luckily, the nice folks at Disney-Hyperion are helping me do a giveaway.
