Let the Halloween Festivities Begin
I took her to the Lowe's Build & Grow Clinic this morning. This time we created a "Frankenstring" Magic Trick. It is actually kinda a lame trick. But it was nice to do with her. Daddy usually takes her to these, but I decided to let him go back to bed (he was very tired) and take her there and to run some other errands.
This afternoon/evening we took her to the Enchanted Forest at River Bend Nature Center. I told her pick out a costume. She went into her costume trunk and picked out these pieces to wear and said she was a Fairy Godmother.
She has plenty of opportunities to wear her costumes, so might as well let her wear whatever she will enjoy (or weather appropriate if necessary.)
I don't plan on putting the costumes away either. They will stay out for her to play with whenever she wants to play dress up.
There were lots of activities and we were there for 2.5 hours. We did everything they had to do there, which included going on two of the trails that had drama students pretending to be animals and acting out a scene, birds & educators from the U of M Raptor Center, making 2 crafts, playing 4 games for which she won prizes (the drama students also gave out prizes on the trails), went to the campfire & sing-a-long and roadted marshmallows, had her face painted, went on the horse drawn wagon ride twice, watched a juggler (she was facinated by him juggling the fire batons) while eating snacks we purchased.
