Live Your Favorite Book!

We are so excited to kick off our  Cheap or Free Summer Fun Series with you!

I'm willing to bet that your kids have a favorite book--or maybe a favorite series? Little Critter? Frances? Berenstain Bears? A great cheap (or free!) summer activity with the kids is to bring their favorite books to life. Not only are books great inspiration for kid-friendly activities, but it makes reading that much more exciting for your kids!

My girlies are fans of the ever-mischievous Curious George. Turns out that cute 'lil monkey goes camping--and what's more summery than a campfire and s'mores!? 

Step 1: Gather Supplies.
Cost: approximately $5. My parents have a fire pit and wood, so we only had to buy the ingredients for the s'mores.

Step 2: Read the story with the kiddos.

Step 3: Recruit your handsome-pants husband to wrangle up a fire for ya.
Confession: It was my amazing husband who thought of this idea. He is a genius.

Step 4: Invite friends and/or family and roast yourself some goodies!

Step 5: Enjoy the goodness!

A note of caution: Watch out for the tiny ones. They're stealthier than you'd expect!

What book would you choose to "live" with your kids?
