If You Give A…All Planned Out!

With 2 Weeks of Sofia the First behind us we are ready to tackle the second half of June! Who doesn’t love Laura Numeroff’s “If You Give A…” books? We love them! So much that Jeremy and I can read them with our eyes closed and Capri can recite them from memory too! We have 6 of the books. We received this awesome gift pack with 5 of them and then Glammie bought us If You Give a Dog a Donut at a book fair! So with 6 books I decided to do one each day, which is perfect because Harper will be with us 6 days the 2nd half of June! I referenced Pinterest, as you can see in the picture, but didn’t really get a lot from there. The books have so many obvious activities that I just went with those. Oh and that great notebook paper…that has someone else’s name on it…It’s part of my Thirty-One sample pack but I totally love it!

Here we go! I don’t know what order we will do these in yet…
