with wonderful silliness that appeals to kids of all ages!
Several years ago, when my children were young enough to be in a summer reading programs, I was lucky enough to go and see author and illustrator Laurie Keller as she presented her new book, Arnie the Doughnut. She brought along doughnuts that looked remarkably like Arnie himself. She taught us the proper way to eat doughnuts which, I am happy to say, all of my children have mastered. How you ask? You always look at the doughnut and ask, "May I eat you, please?" If the doughnut doesn't answer than you may go right ahead and eat it!
I can't wait to share pictures with you of my owlets decorating their doughnuts with googly eyes and pipe cleaners. If your feeling the excitement mounting you may want to watch this video...Warning it may create too much excitement in the anticipation of National Day of the Donuts!
I'm happy to share with you these activities inspired by the book Arnie the Doughnut and Digital Bakeshop's Kawaii Treats.What ever you do to celebrate I hope it involves a favorite doughnut of mine named Arnie who becomes the first DOuGnut ever. His adventure about friendship with someone he may
have least expected to be friends with
is as funny as it is heartwarming.
