Round Up of Kids Book Club Reading Activities and KBN Giveaway



One of the things kids' favorite things to do during the summer is a book club with some of their friends. We usually meet only 3 or 4 times over the course of the summer. The families take turn choosing the books. The kids like to choose a favorite book they've already read but want their friends to read. The moms plan out some activities to do with the book and we get together and play. It's lots of fun!

The KBN (or Kids Blogger Network) is hosting a giveaway that I thought y'all might be interested in entering, and we were supposed to do a round-up post along with the giveaway - so I bring you a round up of book activity ideas that you could use in a kids' book club this summer.

For younger kids:

Press Here book activity ideas from Crayon Freckles








Moosetache book activity ideas from Not Just Cute












 The Gruffalo book activity ideas from Coffee Cups and Crayons








Not A Stick book activity ideas from No Time For Flash Cards









Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs book activity














And for older kids:

Liar and Spy book club activity from Pragmatic Mom












The Borrowers from KC Edventures












Looking back to try and find book activities, I realized I never posted the activities from last year, and there were some good ones. I'll have to go back and do that. Someday.
