I’ve partnered up with Scholastic on a super fun party with Groovy Joe! Remember Groovy Joe Ice Cream and Dinosaurs book? Groovy Joe is up to something fun again! We threw a disco party to get groovy and celebrate the release of Groovy Joe: Dance Party Countdown book by Eric Litwin! Read more here.
#1 New York Times bestsellers Eric Litwin (Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes) and Tom Lichtenheld (Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site) are back again in another groovy story that will have little ones singing, dancing, and learning math to a whole new beat.
To celebrate the release of Groovy Joe: Dance Party Countdown, we stopped by our local party store to purchase a few supplies to throw a fun disco party for the kids! Disco themed paper plates and cups and of course, a Disco Ball my kids got pretty obsessed about it!
We served popcorn in disco themed cups.
We had to get Groovy Joe’s favorite treat – ice cream!
Groovy Joe: Dance Party Countdown illustrations are pretty amazing! The kids laugh so much about Groovy Joe dancing with a tambourine wrapped around his tail so we had to make our own DIY tambourine using paper plates, mini bells and ribbon!
The kids had SO much fun listening and dancing along to Groovy Joe’s Songs. They started to get pretty competitive at some point! Too much fun!
The highlight was when after all the dancing, they received their official certificate of Groovy-ness! They got SO excited!
Groovy Joe: Dance Party Countdown truly is a wonderful book to add to your kids collection! We absolutely LOVE everything about it! If you get yourself a copy, I would love to hear from you! Please follow us on Instagram @twinkletwinklelittleparty and let us know what you think! See you there!
