I started a tradition that my sister's twins and my brother in law's neice and also one of my good friends daughters come up with a play for the family that they do on Saturday nite. I bring the props and costumes-and they come up with the ideas with a little help from me. These kids really have some great ideas for plays with great moral ideas. I'm very proud of them! We started off with a circus theme because I had costumes that would only fit each of them this year(they grow so fast~!). They each let me apply stage make-up and we let the family know. The great thing this year was -we had a lot of other campers come-the kids were so excited about it. I strung a clothesline with pink striped sheets across a volleyball net and they had their curtain to dress and put their props behind.
The circus clowns have come to town-Little Maggie Mae did some tricks for treats-jumping thru a boa covered hoop, jumping over a baton, and doing a little twirl-she's not very good at it, but she looked so good in her clown costume-along with all the other clowns!~
The Girls Play-Rich Ladies fighting over a little Fairy they found~and the fairy told them to get along!
Our little magicians-they all had a great little magic trick! The end of the show-always over too soon for all their hard work!
At the end we all dressed up like witches(and a vampire!) and walked the campground -even little Maggie had her witch's costume on(I'll post a better picture of her next week)!
If you're ever out camping -your kids are welcome to join in ( I heard one lady tell me the next day that her grand-daughter went back to their campsite doing a puppet show and trying some magic tricks!) or come and have fun watching!
Great Job kids-you make camping even more Fun-wish you didn't have to grow up-then again-I haven't!
