B.M.W.B #34 – The Mystery Book Game

Sometimes I make up games just for fun. Simple things to do with my boys that create a happy atmosphere is my main hope from an activity.

This week I filled a drawstring bag with bits and pieces and in the afternoon we took turns pulling an item out. Whoever pulled out the item had to think of a story/book that related to the item (in their mind no hard and fast rules here). Then they found the book and we read it together.

It was great to stop and create anticipation and mystery around reading a big stack of books together.

The boys absolutely loved it and were very encouraging to each other about whatever they picked.

Some of my happiest memories involve listening to stories.

What is your favourite all-time picture book?

This year I am making more of a conscious effort to have quality moments with my boys. B.M.W.B (becoming the mama I want to be)  is my way of recording and hopefully inspiring other mama’s too. Please inspire me with the little moments you are snatching with your little people OR with ideas I could do with mine. If you have blogged about it please leave a comment so we can all visit and encourage each other. 
Simple. Achievable. Intentional: becoming the mama I want to be.
