If You Give a Mouse a Cookie {Craftaholics Anonymous}

Hop on the bus and let's go to Summer Camp!
Linda is the perfect first guest of our Summer Camp series!  I had the pleasure of meeting Linda from Craftaholics Anonymous at Creative Estates, and she is a gem!  Also super talented!  This is one yummy idea.

Hi there!
My name is Linda, and I'm so excited Alison invited me over to play today!
I'm the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous. I hope you'll stop by and say hi!
Well, today I am going to share a favorite book at our house, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. I think the fact that it has a cute mouse AND a cookie in it, makes this book one of my little guy's faves!
To make this book more interactive for my little man, here's what we did.....
First off, we made Chocolate Chip Cookies {umm, no brainer!}

Chocolate Chip Cookies

{this is our fave recipe!}

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1-2 cups chocolate chips
Mix shortening and butter. Add both sugars and baking soda. Beat together. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add flour. Place on greased cookie sheet and back for 8 minutes at 375 degrees.
While we baked the cookies, we read the book and did some of the other activities that the mouse does in the book, like:
*sweep the kitchen floor {yay for a clean floor!}
*draw a mouse picture with crayons and sign his name
*hang the picture on the refrigerator
*get a glass of milk
and then...... enjoy a warm cookie from the oven with that cold glass of milk! Yummers!
and if your kids are anything like mine, you'll have to repeat all or some of the activities.....especially the eating cookies part! haha
Happy Summer!!
Linda

    What a great idea! I have always loved this book, but I have yet to read it to my son. We'll definitely be making the walk over to the library this afternoon!

  2. What a great series Alison. This is perfect for having fun with the kids this summer.

    I am loving the series for ideas! As a mom of grown children (24 & 19), I just became guardian of my 3 yo nephew. He LOVES having us read to him. I want him to cultivate that love for reading and this is the ticket!
