It was supposed to be Friday but it got rained out so Saturday afternoon from 4-7 we finally had our day care carnival. It was an end of summer appreciation party for my day care families. 7 kids couldn't come but we still had 25 of us. Dan & LaVonne & kids and Kyle & Kira came with their Grandpa Dean too. We were glad to have them all join us!
The menu: hot dogs, corn dogs, chips, peanuts, nachos, popcorn, lemonade, eclairs & cream puffs. For games we had a ducky pond, dolphin ring toss, football bean bag game, ping pong jar toss, basketball hoop, air table hockey, sand art activity, mystery box, lion/tamer photo board, penny search, knock a can, and an animal cookie guessing jar. Don't forget the balloons, cotton candy, glow sticks, suckers & treat bags! Everyone earned tickets for prizes. Then Smooches the clown & her assistant (her little dog Bailey) came to do face painting.
We had a great time and the weather was beautiful! This is something I've wanted to do for a few years and enjoyed putting it together. Mom came down to help set up and help out during the carnival. I'm so glad that worked out, I never could have done it myself! Dan & LaVonne stayed and helped us clean up-that was so nice! A great way to end summer! Next I need to plan a birthday party.....that's sounding a lot easier! Lots of pictures follow!
