Froot Loops Name Activity

Froot Loops
Unlined paper
Markers or crayons

Start by writing your child's name on a blank piece of paper or if they are old enough let them write it. Next they will glue the Froot Loops on each of the letters in their name. Let dry.

Depending on their age and gluing skill level you may need to be a little hands on.

Let your child decide if they want solid colors or to make patterns with their Froot Loops.

Froot Loops Necklace

Making Froot Loop necklaces have been around for as long as I can remember but what little kid doesn't love making them? They are great for little ones to practice patterns plus it is really good for their hand eye coordination and strengthening their fine motor skills. Oh and of course they are colorful and yummy!

Froot Loops

To make it easier we like to tape one end of the yarn to the table so the Froot Loops won't slide off. The other end we wrap tape around so the yarn won't unravel while the kids are trying to string the Froot Loops.

Reading List

84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff
It all began with a letter inquiring about second-hand books, written by Helene Hanff in New York, and posted to a bookshop at 84, Charing Cross Road in London. As Helene's sarcastic and witty letters are responded to by the stodgy and proper Frank Doel of 84, Charing Cross Road, a relationship blossoms into a warm, charming, feisty love affair.

I loved reading this book and found it to be completely charming.

Where'd You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple
Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom.
Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette's intensifying allergy to Seattle--and people in general--has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands. A trip to the end of the earth is problematic.
To find her mother, Bee compiles email messages, official documents, secret correspondence--creating a compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter's role in an absurd world.

I can't tell you enough good things about this book. It was fun, captivating and witty. I couldn't wait to read more about Bernadette. I found myself laughing out loud numerous times. 

Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger
New Bremen, Minnesota, 1961. The Twins were playing their debut season, ice-cold root beers were selling out at the soda counter of Halderson’s Drugstore, and Hot Stuff comic books were a mainstay on every barbershop magazine rack. It was a time of innocence and hope for a country with a new, young president. But for thirteen-year-old Frank Drum it was a grim summer in which death visited frequently and assumed many forms. Accident. Nature. Suicide. Murder.
Frank begins the season preoccupied with the concerns of any teenage boy, but when tragedy unexpectedly strikes his family—which includes his Methodist minister father; his passionate, artistic mother; Juilliard-bound older sister; and wise-beyond-his-years kid brother—he finds himself thrust into an adult world full of secrets, lies, adultery, and betrayal, suddenly called upon to demonstrate a maturity and gumption beyond his years.

I was pulled into this book right away and loved the depth of the characters. 

Have you read any of these books? If so, what did you think? What have you been reading?
