Blueberries For Sal

On Friday I read the book,
'Blueberries for Sal', by Robert McCloskey
to Isaac and Seth.
I remember my mom reading this book to me when I was younger. It is such a cute book about a mom and son who go Blueberry picking on a blueberry hill.


We read the book right before we went Blueberry picking with some of our friends.
We all had so much fun picking blueberries. We all tied a rope around our waste with a bucket attached to it.

Isaac and Seth did a great job picking the Blueberries.
Seth started getting bored towards the end, so he started throwing his blueberries on the ground. Oh- well, at least he had fun doing it. :-)

We ended up with 4 pounds of fresh picked blueberries. The best part is that the cost was only $1 a pound. So I paid $4 for 4 pounds of blueberries!


Now I have to figure out what to do with all of them. :-)
I have already put 4 half gallon bags in the freezer. I gave a way a container to a friend. We have made blueberry pancakes. And I am planning on making Blueberry Bars soon(I will post the recipe after I make it).
If you have any suggestions on what I should do with the blueberries or have a good Blueberry recipe please let me know.
This was a great activity to do with kids, they really enjoyed it. I would for sure do it again.
