9 kids descended upon our house on Saturday to help Malcolm celebrate his 6th birthday. Add my two to the count and we had 11 kids ranging in age from 2 to 7. It was a riot!! Thankfully the weather held out, a bit chilly but the kids were too busy to notice! So we had a lot of free play running around, amazing how much fun big cardboard tubes can be:
Then we organized a follow the leader obstacle course, on your hands and knees:
pin the tail on the ankylosaurus:
They dug for some dinosaurs buried in the sand box, just like a real paleontologist. Then we did a science experiment, baking soda, vinegar, and food colouring:
Presents and cake:
Thank you bags for the kids to take home!
I think they all had a good time, lots of laughter, only a few tears shed over the course of the afternoon, one pout by Malcolm, it was a dino-rrific day!! And thank goodness it is over for another year!!!
