Trust The BubbleInk Writes to come up with awesome book and craft ideas.
She facilitated a love books exchange in association with the Educators Spin on it this July .
The Educators spin on it facilitate a book and craft exchange between book loving parents in the U.S ( which is done during the US summer ).
Thanks to the BubbleInk momma , parents from India took part in this exchange for the first time. We were paired with Chetana from Bengaluru.
We shipped our package to Chetana early July. You can read about it here
We recently received a package from Chetana too that contained one book and craft
Chetana sent us the famous The Giving Tree book
She sent us an awesome apple tree craft which she picked from Itsy Bitsy
My son wanted to finish the craft as soon as he set his eyes on it
So we finished the craft within a day of receiving it
My son wanted to place the red apple slightly closer to the boy so it seems like he is reaching out to pick it
We loved doing this activity and are getting addicted to book + craft combinations
It keeps us happy and oh yes shuts the kid out of screen time !
Thanks Chetana and special mention and thanks to the BubbleInk Writes for this awesome idea of book+craft exchange
We loved being part of this 2014 exchange
