….chances are he’ll become obsessed with it and want to read it a million times. Not only is that a good thing, but it is a WONDERFUL thing.

And that is what happened when we checked Laura Numeroff’s book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. My newly turned 3 year old wanted to read it over and over and over and my book lover’s heart swelled.

AND if that book lover also happens to be a homeschooler, then there will be activities to go with the book. Pinterest came to the rescue with: a cookie number matching game and a cookie color matching game.

I used the lid to one of my candles as a template for the cookies (I’m too broke to be a cricut mom). I recommend the sugar cookie scent.


My little one had a ball sorting the colored chipped cookies on to the corresponding plates (you can’t really see the green chips in my picture) and matching the numbered cookies with the chips. If I would have had the ingredients, we also would have made cookies to munch on.

By the time we were done, it was time to cook dinner and he was wound up. So I put on If You Give a Mouse a Christmas Cookie on Amazon Prime Video.

He loved the activities and I adored the time spent with him. Makes me miss being a stay at home mom.

You might need Crayola 96 Ct Construction Paper, Assorted Colors. I never remember to keep construction paper in stock. Lol. My mother in law actually bought my current stash during the back to school sales.
