In every job that must be done, there’s an element of fun ~ Mary Poppins

The kids loved the book. They were a little confused that it seemed to leave out some of the story they had covered in the movie. I was taken aback by the blasphemy in the book, since I don’t use that type of language. I just changed the word to “gosh” while I was reading.

Here the kids are paging through the book after bathtime.

My three sick kidlets watching the movie. Fifi had tonsillitis which had almost cleared by the time this photo was taken, Pixie had upper respiratory tract infection (Papa Steven said she sounded like Darth Vader, LOL) and Koko was heading to the doctor that afternoon, he has terrible sinus infection thanks to his allergies 🙁

  • Great Emerald City; I bet the kids loved building it!

    • They did, thank you. It was a ton of fun. They asked to do more activities like this in future 🙂

  • I love the magnet idea. I always forget how much they love manipulating them!

    • Thank you. The magnets are super easy to make too. I buy A3 sheets of self adhesive magnetic sheets, print whatever they are into at the time and cut them out. Quick easy and relatively painless 🙂

  • Sorry to hear that your kids weren’t feeling well. I hope that they are all feeling better now 🙂 What a fantastic Emerald City!

  • I love your Emerald City! Your lapbook cover is super cute, too.

  • That is an awesome Emerald City! We did wizard wands…that got chewed up by our puppy 🙂

  • loved your model! Hope everyone is feeling better!

  • Those dinosaur sandwiches look good enough to eat! Integrating snacks into our theme is something I never really think of so thanks for the reminder!
