0 Love Books Exchange : The Tantalizing Turtle's Tall Tale :

We received our package from A Spoonfull of ideas - An awesome pairing fitted to the "T" to the non-crafty Bubble Ink. Like we said in this post, A Spoonfull of ideas is one of those crafty-blogs we have been pinning and bookmarking for the simplicity in her craft ideas. The blogger being India based, the craft supplies are also easily available and all her activities seem so doable and are creative too.

We received Turtle's Tall Tale* and 2 activities in our package. 
*Buy your copy here on Amazon or on Flipkart
The Book:
A lovely story by Aimee Sald and illustrated by Lisa Kerr - a story of a turtle who loves exploring in the ocean and is always on adventure journeys. The turtles friends dismiss his adventures and explorations as "Tall Tales", till one day they decide to follow him and are surprised with the Sun Fish . From that day on, they indeed start believing his stories. 

The book with its repetitive text and the bubbling's love for fishes was a great hit. We loved the beautiful illustrations too. 

The Package:
The package was very well planned with 2 activities. 

Make your own turtle with Walnut shells:

We got 4 walnut shells( to give us enough tries to break the shell in exact halves) , green foam, googly eyes and a turtle template to make this one. The Bubble Ink got to eat the walnut too with the bubbling dismissing it , being eager to do the activity. 

With the bubbling so much into googly eyes these days, this activity was an instant hit and she waited patiently holding those googly eyes for me to cut the turtle template. 

Foam sticker activity:
This went perfectly with the theme of the books, with octopuses and fishes as foam stickers to take off and stick on to reproduce an ocean scene. With a little help, the bubbling was all engrossed and finished an octopus and a fish at one go.

A Spoonfull of ideas had it all right with the bubbling - Her love for fishes, her recent fascination with googly eyes and her i-never-get-bored approach for stickers. We loved every bit of the package. 

It was a lovely experience packaging something like this for another kid - a surprise package, that too a one involving books and activities for them to enjoy! This was part of the Love Books exchange 2014. See all other packages here to get do them at your own home.
