This week's idea was courtesy of David! As we were talking about what to do for Family Night, he pointed out how our children are always wanting to do shows and put on programs. We took the idea and ran with it!
The littles and I made programs and we decided to have the program on our screened porch as it has lights strung on it right now from a shower I had recently (pictures coming of that!) It was so fun!
We also prepared snacks and I printed out the little treat boxes found here. I made these sugar cookie bars so we could decorate a fun First Day of Fall treat (this was last Saturday!) and I didn't have time to do rolled out cut outs. A great substitute! With the bars, just use a cookie cutter to cut out the shape after they are baked and enjoyed pumpkin and leaf shapes! I didn't try the frosting recipe provided, but made our family favorite icing.
Let the show begin!
We really didn't have rules for what they could do in the show - Samuel demonstrated how to put on a football helmet and how to kick a soccer ball :) Rachel is behind the puppet show and Emily sang two songs using a play guitar and the air pump for a mic!
Mama and Daddy got in on the action too - I wrote a short puppet show about the First Day of Fall and David led charades!
It was a fun success!
