Welcome to day 3 of our "If You Give A..." series by Laura Numeroff Homeschool Unit!
Be sure to check out the other days in this unit...
Day 1, If You Give A Mouse A Cookie
Day 2, If You Give A Pig A Pancake
For Day 3, we read If You Give A Moose A Muffin from the Mouse, Cookies, and More: A Treasury book. I also have an individual paperback copy that I put in Ezra's reading chair in his room (side note: I need to take some pics of his room for the blog).

Of course, we needed to make muffins! I pinned this extremely easy recipe on Pinterest a few days ago. I had a big can of Libby's pumpkin that I bought for something last year and didn't get around to, so I doubled the recipe. All you need is a 15 oz. can of pumpkin, a white cake mix (I used Pillsbury white cake mix--it was $1), and a cup of chocolate chips. Since I had the big can of pumpkin, we doubled the recipe and it made about 46 muffins.
I have to say, these are about the most wonderful things I've ever baked!! They melted in your mouth and they tasted like Autumn, love, home, and happiness!!
They may or may not be almost gone now... (a day later)...

On the agenda: making sock puppets, more learning games, and more dancing and reading!
