Last night was Race Car Night for our family fun night. The boys LOVED it! I’ll try to update with pictures later after they load on the computer. We made license plates with foam sheets cut into rectangles then decorated with stickers. The big project of the night was taking boxes and making them into cars that the boys could be inside. We didn’t get to finish them last night, but hope to complete today. JD had awesome creativity in making them. Some other fun – decorating paper bags to look like traffic lights, coloring and making Cars shrinky dinks (remember those?!?), and playing Red Light/Green Light. For dinner we had hot dogs with carrot slices attached to the sides with toothpicks for wheels, baked beans, and chips with homemade salsa and then checkered ice cream (choc. & vanilla by Breyers) with Oreo tires. Mmmm…!!!
It takes a little prep each week to plan out Family Fun Nights, but it is so worth the effort. The boys love them and I hope they look back on these nights with fondness.
