Making a Project Out of a Book

After my girls and I read a book, they often want to do what they just read, act it out, or ask endless why questions about the characters. Reading a book is a great way to get a great idea for a {little project}. If you haven't tried this before, I have a great book idea to get you started.
It's 6 Sticks by Molly Coxe. It's a story about two little mice that find 6 popsicle sticks and spend the day making different things with them. After we read the book, we made many of the same little projects and a few of our own.

What can you make out of 6 (or more) popsicle sticks?

Book advice: If you're looking for inexpensive books for you or your kids, check out your local library book sale. Both Jedda and I have been able to get children's books for 25-50 cents in Maryland, Indiana, Michigan, and Texas. It is a great deal for us and proceeds benefit the library. Our local library book sale is where we found this little book.

Enjoy making a fun reading {Little Project!}
