This month’s Book Club Play Date is centered on the book Llama Llama Red Pajama. I’m sharing a few ideas for snacks inspired by the book. For this play date, I envisioned a pajama day with the kids – it’s something my son and I do sometimes, and we try to have one once a year in preschool too.

Llama Llama Red Pajama is a rhyming story about Baby Llama who isn’t too keen on going to bed. He’s a bit worried about what his mama is up to, and he causes a bit of a ruckus about it. This story really lends itself to having a pajama play date! The kiddos can come all dressed in their pajamas, listen to the story, then get down to some fun!
After some activities, it’ll be time for a snack. The snack that we almost always eat during pajama day (at school or at home) is popcorn! For a Llama Llama themed snack, we decided to add red M&Ms to the popcorn – actually, we went with kettle corn this time around. The red M&Ms match Baby Llama’s pajamas, and add a sweet aspect to the salty popcorn.
We also enjoy a good cup of hot chocolate with the popcorn, so we couldn’t forget that! We added some whipped cream and red sprinkles to match the red M&Ms. An easy-peasy snack for a fun pajama day play date!
Some other ideas for Llama Llama Red Pajama day snacks:
- Pancakes or waffles
- Cookies made into the shape of a quilt (like Baby Llama’s quilt)
- Red foods, like strawberries
Do you and your kiddos/students ever hold a pajama day? What do you get up to on those days?
