Time for Mystery Reader in Lincoln's class!!! Dragons Love Tacos was the book choice, and there were lots of fun things to go along with it. The story is super cute and there were lots of giggles during the reading.
Our first craft was making paper "tacos" . . . of course! Lots of cut up paper and tissue paper filled up the folded paper plates. They looked great!!
Next up was making our fire-breathing dragon mouths! Because if the dragon eats a spicy taco . . . well, it gets hot!!! We glued red and yellow tissue strips inside a cup that had a hole cut in the bottom and a straw sticking in. When the kids blew in the straw, it fluttered the tissue paper. They loved it!!
And for snack time . . . we hit up the Jack In The Box drive thru on the way to school and brought 22 tacos to share with the class. Biggest hit ever!! Mom, Lincoln and Beau had never had one before, and Lincoln liked it. Mom and Beau didn't try one, but maybe we should!!
We went to dinner with friends on this Friday night, then came home to get all cleaned up. Someone had a long day preparing for and helping craft at Mystery Reader. Crashed on the floor after the bath!!
Such a fun book and lots of great crafts . . . and a winning snack! Wonder if we can reuse this one when Beau is in 1st grade?!?!
