Very Hungry Caterpillar Baby Shower

My mom, sister, and I recently threw a baby shower for my sister-in-law who is expecting a baby girl in a few weeks.  One of her favorite kid's book is The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  So we made that our theme.  The butterfly crackers came from Target as did the snail canvas (on clearance!)
I made the mobile, the onesies, and the baby blanket under the gifts.
For games, we wrote on diapers (my favorite contribution was "I like clean butts and I cannot lie").

We played two children's book games: Alternative Titles, and Name the Book.
The food labels came from this site.
We were really inspired by all the different ideas and pictures we found on Pinterest and thought that these pictures might help/inspire someone else in their planning!

5 Pigs So Squeaky Clean Quiet Book Page

I LOVE this flannel board story and decided it would make a super fun quiet book page!  My youngest son and I will often lay in bed at night and sing songs together and he is quite fond of "the pig song".

Here is my interpretation:

On the left side is the bathtub (full of pigs) with vinyl and sequin bubbles to count.
On the right side is the pig pen with muddy pockets for the pigs to squish around in.

The pigs are clean on one side and dirty (with brown acrylic paint) on the other.

After the pigs get dirty, they can be soaped off in the tub and turn around to the clean side again!

I am hoping to have the pattern for this page up very soon!  Keep checking back!

Sparks Tic Tac Toe

I really like having easy games that my Sparks can pull out after they are done with verses or while they are waiting for their parents to pick them up. This is a super simple little Spark's themed tic tac toe that I made.

Rocket and UFO Space Pages

I revamped my space page a little bit to make it bigger and add a rocket ship, astronaut, and stars to count to the basic UFO/alien page.  I really love how it turned out!  These are actually the second batch of aliens I made because my three year old absconded with the first set :)

I finished the pages in black satin with a star overlay.  Such a simple but super fun space set!

Itsy Bitsy Spider & Miss Muffet Quiet Book Pages

So I recently finished a Little Miss Muffet & the Itsy Bitsy Spider 2 page spread.  I am really happy with how it turned out!

 I finished the pages in this sweet butterfly and flower print I have left over from my wedding!  It just goes perfectly with the theme.
