Book Club, Girls’ Edition – Pippi Longstocking

Pippi Longstocking
After a short summer break, our book club girls are back at it – and this month, we had a blast!  We read “Pippi Longstocking” and found a million things to do with this book.
After summarizing and talking about the story, we moved into the kitchen to make pancakes –not Pippi style.  I was hoping to keep the batter in the pan and off the walls, and as always, the girls did a great job.
Each brought her favorite pancake extra, so the girls made their own creations.  Most added chocolate chips, sprinkles, and whipped cream.  Nobody chose raspberries!  
When their creations were complete, they moved to the playroom to watch the movie while they ate.  This one is particularly cute with several songs, and being able to see quirky Pippi on the big screen really makes these traits come to life.


We discovered one scene that was in the movie and not the book – and so we decided to re-enact this one.  In the movie Pippi buys ice cream for the residents of a local orphanage, and then they get into a huge ice cream fight in the middle of the town square.  Since ice cream would be super sticky – and expensive! – we decided to use shaving cream instead.  Although still quite messy, the girls had a blast smearing and squirting the stuff everywhere.  

My yard smelled great for days.

What about you?  Are you Pippalotta fans?
