If you give a child a muffin….

If you are familiar with children’s literature you will recognize our play on words!  The Blue Room made strawberry jam and muffins and there is no better book to pair with that project than If You Give a Moose a Muffin by Laura Numeroff .  What excitement to see all of the strawberries they so carefully cut up actually turn into jam!  On Tuesday, the Blue Room children mixed sugar and pectin and all 4 lbs. of strawberries into a large bowl and put it in the refrigerator over night. On Wednesday, they made muffins from scratch.  When they had cooled just enough, they paired the warm muffins with a heaping spoonful of jam (or two or three) and enjoyed every last crumb/drop.  Stop by the Blue Room over the next few days to see the children create sock puppets, just as the Moose in the story did!
