I decided I needed a book box with a more "girl" centered theme. We have two little girls that have signed up to participate now. The list of kiddos for the traveling book boxes is quickly growing. (Original post here) Miss Whitney will soon receive the cupcakes, ice cream, and flip flops book box.
Cupcakes, Ice Cream and Flip Flops Summer Book Box Contents

· Ice Cream Everywhere by Marjorie Blain Parker
· Flip Flop by Dana Meachen Rau
· Henry and Mudge and the Best Day of All by Cynthia Rylant

· Game: Ice Cream Popsicle Matching. Play memory with the popsicles or just mix them up in a big pile, set the sand timer, and race to put the matches together before time runs out.
· Game: Cupcake Recipe. Pick a cupcake recipe and create your felt cupcake with the right number of ingredients of sprinkles, chocolate chips, and cherries. Recipe cards available here to print.
