If You Give…Numeroff Party for the School Age!


Inspired by Jbrary’s Book Character Roundup, I decided to do a Laura Numeroff Party after school. I read If You Give a Cat a Cupcake because it was the only game that required direct knowledge of the story. Then I setup four stations to accompany each book:


Numeroff Party Cookie Game

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie Memory Game: Homeschool Share has a ready-to-go Cookie Flip game.


If You Give a Moose a Muffin Tin Challenge: You just need a ping pong ball, a muffin tin, poster board (semi-optional).


Numeroff Party Cupcake Game

If You Give a Cat a Cupcake: I found a downloadable game at First Grade a la Carte. I already had dice and game pieces hanging around.


Numeroff Party Pancake GameIf You Give a Pig a Pancake Relay Race: I have instructions for all the games here: Numeroff Party Instructions

What other fun Numeroff activities have you done?
