Circus Fun Day
Gracie and I made it a day at the circus.
I have been getting pretty good at coming up with themes for activities to do with her during the day. This one seemed to be a pretty good success.
I made circus themed games, and printed off circus themed activities. We did several crafts, read stories and then put on our own circus. She made quite an impressive high-wire princess I might add. She donned her Aurora costume and flew through the air to much applause.
I am not sure how I can top this one. I have a few other themes in mind like food, the zoo, and a wedding one I need some help with (she is obsessed with weddings, much like I was through most of being a little girl!)
Above; I made popcorn boxes and put capital letters on them. I put lower case on the popcorn and she had to put the right popcorn in the right box. Pretty ingenious huh! Actually, I'll take all the help I can get with those lower case letters--she struggles with them.
Below: Like our carousel? We decorated our own horses with markers and glitter glue and sparkly shapes. I think this was her favorite. As you can see she is dressed up as a "high flying princess." We also let the Little People put on their circus as well.
