A Little Hoot Kind of Day {Kiki Creates}

Happy Friday!!  Here to welcome the weekend is Kiki from Kiki Creates.  I adore Kiki's blog and her fantastic etsy shop.  I simply can't believe the inspiration that has come out of this Summer Camp series!  I am learning about even more children's books than I knew existed!  Kiki is sharing some absolutely adorable stuff today!

Hi everyone!  I'm Kiki from Kiki Creates and am super excited to be here for this series.  Oopsey Daisy was one of the first blogs I came across while blogging, so it is an honor to be here!  Kiki Creates is a blog filled with tutorials,free printables and the inspiration where it all comes from. I keep myself busy with my blog and etsy shop, but my greatest excitement and love for life come from raising my 3 little munchkins and being a wife to the best husband on earth.

I am so excited to show you the incredibly fun day my kids and I had recently all based on the book "Little Hoot" by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrated by Jen Corace.  Have you ever read a book and said, "I want to have that day with my kids?!"  This is exactly what I wanted to do!

To give you a little background, Little Hoot is an owl like a lot of owls in so many ways except one. He doesn't like bedtime..and not because he doesn't like going to bed, but because he is an owl, and owls HAVE to stay up at night!  This fun little book goes through the activities his mom and dad get him to do to stay up as long as possible..and with that let me tell you about our day, which definitely ended up being:

based on the book "Little Hoot" by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

and starring my own 3 little hoots!

In the book, Little Hoot has to come up with activity after activity to help him stay awake. (This is not a problem in my home, but we sure had a good time following Little Hoot's lead!)

Little Hoot built a fort....so we did too:

Of course, fort building is tiring so we refueled.

Little Hoot jumped on his bed..and so did we:

The last little bit of the night was hardest for Little Hoot..so he skateboarded..

However, we live in Vegas and in  110 degree weather, you just don't skateboard, so we do what we do best...swim!

And after all of those activities, we had the same outcome:

My kids not only love this book, but had so much fun reenacting their favorite pages in real life!  This has my head spinning now to think of other "days" we can have.

Our treats were made especially for our day...and the kids loved them.  Do you want to make them too?

"You're A Hoot" cupcake decor will be available for FREE for one week only. It will then head to my shop with a host of other supplies to host a perfect owl party!  You can find the free download HERE.

Thanks so much for having me, Alison. It was such a treat to be here!


Thanks, Kiki!  You are so talented!!

Today, you can find ME over at Sew Dang Cute Crafts, where I am posting while Tam is taking care of her brand new baby!
