Invitation to Grayson's 8th Camping Birthday Party
(translation: Grayson's Camping Party, What, Where, When. and Contact info.)
Birthday Camping Cake (instructions for Bonfire, here)
Camping fare: Teepee Campfire Cake (instructions for making the bonfire, here) on top, Lower row: M+M cookies, marshmallow skewers which were ready for chocolate dipping, sandwiches (wrapped in craft paper, of course) and home made lemonade.
Francesca hand lettered our Camping Sign, which welcomed the guests. One of the games that we played was "follow the string" around our lawn and danced the limbo under our leaf garland. These "night lights," were the kid's craft. They were made with LED lights and recycled tin. INSTRUCTIONS, here.
GAMES WE PLAYED: Pass the gift: We wrapped 15 boxes within one another (the smallest in the middle, largest being the outer box.) The game works something like musical chairs. Everyone sits in a circle and the large box is passed when the music begins. The children will continue to pass the box until the music stops. Whoever has the box when the music stops, opens that box and the next wrapped box will be exposed. The music started again and this continues until all 15 layers have been exposed to reveal the surprise wrapped in the final, smallest, inner box.
