This July we decided to forgo our usual camp and execute 2 #JUMPIN sessions. We did a repeat of We're Going on a Bear Hunt and decided to do a favourite of mine The Giving Tree!
We're Going on a Bear Hunt - Take 2
Children love this story! When we pull back the curtains and say let's walk through the story everyone is excited to go on a bear hunt! Even moms and dads.
The Giving Tree
We did things a little differently. Instead of us doing a #jumpin to the story we read the book #inthestory under our Giving Tree. The parents then discussed with their children what the tree gave to the boy and what they could give to someone they love that doesn't cost money. Hugs and kisses were the obvious choices but some of my little readers said "clean up my toys" "behave" "help cook". What a wonderful bonding experience for the family.
