M is for Museum & Poppets Playdates

August 12 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

This month, our M is for Museum/Poppets Playdates theme is… CAMPING!

Our Poppets friends will read Pete the Cat Goes Camping by James Dean. In this book, Pete and his family go camping.  Pete can’t wait to go hiking, fishing, and eat s’mores by the campfire. But when he hears about the mysterious creature named Bigfoot, Pete can’t help but wonder: Is Bigfoot real?  Join us as Pete goes camping for the first time and overcomes some of his fears.

Our M is for Museum friends will read A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee by Chris Van Dusen.  In this wonderful rhyming tale, Mr. Magee and his trusty dog, Dee, are enjoying a peaceful camping trip when along comes a lumbering, marshmallow-loving bear and the excitement begins. The next thing the two campers know, they are plunging down a mountain, racing down a river, and teetering on the edge of a waterfall! How will Mr. Magee and Dee find their way out of this slippery situation?

After we read our stories, we’ll make some binoculars to take home!
