I collected 7 girls (plus my 3) from school and another 2 along the way. We did a treasure hunt the few blocks it takes to get to my house. On the way to school, my Violet girl and I dropped shiny beads for the girls to find. I asked them to choose as many random nature items from on the walk home. They just couldn't go in the neighbors's yards. The girls loved the challenge without knowing what the outcome was.
I was bummed that I forgot to get the camera out for pictures on the way home.
When I got the parade of 12 girls home, we had brownies and cookies and ice cream. I know my girls are always hungry when they get home, so I figured it would be best to sugar them all up right away. We sang happy birthday and then I released them to get creative.
With their wonderful treasures they found on the way home, they were to create a creation of inspiration on half of a cereal box. Then we had a voting period and the winner recieved that cute little pink backpack with a bunch of golden grapes inside (and a cute little book).
I did get some pictures of them creating and the final creations.
This one was my Hazel girl's.
