Now that my youngest is in Kindergarten, we have a whole new routine at home. The first thing he does when he gets home from school is ask for a snack which usually involves something crunchy and a glass of of his favorite drink, SunnyD. While stocking up at Target recently, I noticed the SunnyD bottles had new labeling to promote their Book Spree Program.
SunnyD Book Spree Program
Have you heard about the SunnyD Book Spree Program? This is the 9th year SunnyD has run the Book Spree promotion and it’s a great way to help out classrooms! Let me share a little bit about the program:
- Step 1: Parents clip and collect eligible SunnyD UPC labels.
- Step 2: Parents send UPC labels with their child to a participating teacher.
- Step 3: Teachers collect UPCs, fill out the entry form and mail both to SunnyD.
- Step 4 – SunnyD sends books to participating classrooms (limit of 20 books/classroom). Don’t Delay – Book Spree ends 11/30/2015
Home educators are also eligible, perfect for adding to the home-school library. Teachers cannot select the books they receive, but they are sent current, age-appropriate books. Learn more about the Book Spree Website.
How to Set Up A Reading & Snack Table
Since part of little man’s homework includes reading together for 15 minutes every day (and being the party planner that I am), I decided to set up a little snack table with SunnyD, popcorn, crackers and fresh fruit. In addition to my son’s favorite snacks, I added a few of my youngest son’s favorite books to pick from.
This may look like I went through a lot of trouble, but honestly I didn’t. I hung up a dollar store map on the wall, after all “Reading Takes You Places”. I also hung up a “READ” chalkboard banner (from the DollarSpot at Target) to set the stage. I grabbed my son’s favorite Dr. Suess books and set out some healthy snacks for all three of my boys to enjoy. They loved it!
I popped some fresh popcorn with my air popper and poured some SunnyD in a milk glass with a paper straw. It’s just more special with a paper straw!
I served my son’s favorite crackers in little nut cups, it’s a great way to monitor his portions. He’d eat the whole bag if I let him.
My boys only seem to like apples when I’ve sliced them for them, so I added some sliced apples to ice-cream cups.
Free Printable Bookmarks
Because every bookworm needs their own bookmark, I created a bookmark for each of my boys.
Download your copy HERE. Just print on card-stock and cut. Then punch a hole and add some fringe with baker’s twine. Super easy and best of all FREE!
How easy is that? A great way to inspire my little reader and satisfy his afternoon munchies all at once!
Don’t forget to check out the SunnyD Book Spree Program! K-7th grades classrooms are eligible! It’s so easy, just collect SunnyD labels and send to your child’s teacher. Teachers will then send the labels into SunnyD to get free books. For every 20 labels received, SunnyD will donate 20 free books (while supplies last).

I love this! My son loves all things “cat” and I happen to know firsthand that goldfish pair wonderfully with SunnyD! Yes, I have refined taste in my old age! haha
I love this! Such a great party for a kid, and a great cause!
I don’t have children, but I do have nieces and a nephew. I will be sharing this great idea with them.
This is a really cute idea. I’ll have to copy this when my daughter starts having homework.
I have never thought to create a reading and snack table for the kids. I’ve got to stock up on some Sunny D and get creative to see what kind of snack table I can come up with. The grand kids will think it’s pretty cool.
Your boys must feel so special when they all get to gather with you at the snack table! How adorable! Also, I love when companies support kids reading more!
such a cute setup & I always do a ‘ritual’ with my daughter that involves healthy snack ideas when she gets home too! We love Sunny D at our house – always have liked it!
What an awesome program! We love Sunny D!
I can tell that you are a party planner look at the sheer precision in the way that you construct even a simple reading session. Your party planning skills are flawless!
I haven’t heard about this program, but I like the sound of it. I love your party decorating skills!
I used to love drinking Sunny D! This is such a cute idea!
Love this! As a teacher and mom to six children you are helping your child establish great study habits. A book and snack after school is perfect! And I love Sunny D!
What a clever program and a cute snack station set-up. I love that daily reading at home is a part of today’s curricula–my mom always read with me and it created a lasting love of books!
Love this and the staging was right on.
How cute! You know, my daughters were born way before Pinterest and blogging and all of that. I got creative with them a lot when they were small, but damn there’s so many ideas out there now. Luckily, I gave birth to a baby boy last year, and I get to theme and party and Pinterest the heck out of his childhood. Haha 🙂
What a great idea for after school snack time. I love how you have things set up. It is very helpful to start good study habits from a young age and this would definitely get them started in the right direction!
I love this. Book and sunny D what a great combo
