Play: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
When we thought of faithfulness, the fruit we immediately decided to pair it with is the coconut. If you have ever bought a fresh coconut and then decided you wanted to do the work to eat it, you know that there is some SERIOUS faithfulness involved in getting that thing open and cut.
One of our favorite books dealing with coconuts is the classic, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.
While there is a really fun resource that Lakeshore sells to go along with this book, if you want to save some money and make something yourself, how about a little magnetic play?
Simply cut out a tree from green and brown construction paper. Add some coconuts. Tape it on a cookie sheet, and then let your kids “climb” magnetic ABCs up the tree while you read (or in a retelling of the story afterwards).
Aly wasn’t in the mood to be structured, so we have a 4 and 7 in the tree too :). It’s a simple, but fun activity!
