It is time once again for Poppins Book Nook. This month’s theme is: To the Kitchen! Please join in the fun with the linky & giveaway at the end!
The Little House on the Prairie series has been a favorite of mine since I was a young girl. I read them over & over until the covers fell off. One of the things I loved the most about them were the detailed descriptions of what they ate, and how they prepared their food.
We had an unexpectedly-crazy month, so instead of doing a kitchen project, I decided to plan ahead for a little Christmas Funschool. We like to shelve most of the books in December and have some hands-on fun.
We are going to use two books as the base of our unit: A Little House Christmas Treasury and The Little House Cookbook.
These websites also have some Little House recipes:
- Almanzo’s Pancakes, Cornmeal Pudding with Molasses, and Snow Candy are among the recipes you will find at Little House Books.
- The recipes at Laura’s Prairie House include Horehound Candy, Parched Corn, and Vinegar Pie.
We’ll throw in some activities like churning butter, and figure out the amount of food we would have needed for our covered wagon.
We might even do a free lapbook:
- Little House in the Big Woods
- Little House on the Prairie
- Farmer Boy
- On the Banks of Plum Creek
- By the Shores of Silver Lake
- The Long Winter
- Little Town on the Prairie
- These Happy Golden Years
- The First Four Years
We’ll round out our study with a Little House Virtual Field Trip.
Don’t forget to print out your November Lapbook to document your adventure this month.
