Book Swap Party

Time to celebrate back to school with a Book Swap Party!
10 best buds came over to play, snack, search, and swap. 


Book Page Bunting, Book Marks, and Book Mobile

Kids brought new or old books to swap

N bugger wanted to show you his favorite book, The Incredible Book-Eating Boy
it is a fantastic book and the boys just love the ending!

Kid snacks in the pup bowls, the kids got a kick out of this


Each best bud took home a personalized book tote, book plates, and bookmark 

The pup sure likes to read

By now are you wondering why I wrote play, snack.... search?

The pup lost his collar!  The kids had to search the yard and each find a hidden paper dog collar. On the back was a number that determined the order in which the kids would pick their new book. Worked perfectly!

J Bugger and his BFF reading their new treasures

New books went home in new totes!

And we can't forget about this book wreath

Everyone had a great time! This was a fun, inexpensive way to get the kids excited about books and a new school year. The mommies got to get rid of some duplicate books and the kids loved taking home new books. 

A HUGE thank you to Jaimee from a Bushel and Peck Paper for supplying all the goodies for the Book Swap. I cannot rave enough about her products and how fantastic she is to work with. Please check out her shop, facebook page, or blog!
