Peas Please?!

One of our fist fairy tales was The Princess and the Pea...


 Here are some of the things we did with it!!!

First we went on a secret mission to find out if our mothers were REAL princesses.... They were soooo excited!


They had to come up with a plan to hide the pea under their mother's mattress..... of course
I sent a secret emails to be ready to "whine" about how horrible they slept!!  The kids were
thrilled that it worked!!!


Since they were Real Princesses we had to make them a crown!!! We used green peas to decorate!!



 Then the mom's were presented with a certificate to prove they were a REAL princess...
and crowned!!




To tie in non-fiction... we learned all about peas and howthey grew... then we HAD to have a pea tasting party!!!


It was hard squeezing all those peas the night before
to get pea juice... :)



 Yum???


 




We made a book telling how each type of pea tasted!






 It was sooooo much fun!!! What a way to start the year.
Just for the record, William tried again,
and his mother turned out to be a REAL
princess after all.
