There were a few extra special goodies and favors at the book party. What book worm wouldn’t want their own little bag of bookworms to munch on, while indulging in their favorite page-turner?
These were displayed in a bowl on the bookshelf, for the children to grab and enjoy either during the party or to save with their other favors for later. If you like our little purple bookworm, you can click on this image to save it for personal use for your own party.
Do you recall the Chocolate Scriptures from last year? I said in that post, that they would work well as classic books for a book club or school activity, so it was time to put my money where my blog is.
Similarly to what I had written on the cake, I typed up a few pages of a birthday “novel” about my daughter and formatted it to print in the middle of a standard address label. It was fun to come up with the story to print.
We had these for the guests at the party, and also as part of the goodies we took into her school class (but you are going to have to wait for the sequel to see what else we took to school!). For more information about how to put these books together, check out the scripture post!
One more thing you can do with the printable bookworm:
I sent my bookworm (daughter) on a literary treasure hunt. I collected some of her favorite books and found passages in each book that would indicate a spot in the home where a present and another clue was hidden. Here are the books and clues we used:
Here’s an example of how it works. Nancy Drew–The Secret of the Old Clock on p.49, 2nd paragraph reads: “For answer, Nancy gave her father a hug and then asked if she might use his telephone to call the Hoovers at once.”
Where do you thing that present and subsequent clue was hidden? It was next to the phone in her Dad’s “man cave”. Each passage worked similarly, I just flipped through the book until I saw it talk about a place or an object that could correlate to our own home and work well as a hiding place.
Since your bookworm may like other books, I’m including a blank tag that you can write your own clues on for your own treasure hunt (click on image for full-sized graphic). This was just the kind of activity her bookwormish mind could really get into!
And with this, I think we shall conclude our lengthy novel, The Book Club Birthday. I hope it has inspired you to celebrate the
nerdiness intelligence of your loved ones who adore books. Who says bookworms don’t know how to party?
