A Play and a Magic Show

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!


  1. How much fun is that?!? Looks like a blast, if you ask me. And the little dog, oh, I just love it!! The kids look adorable!

  2. So cute Rebecca. And a fun creative idea.

  3. This is so so cute...and soooo good for the kids. It builds, among other qualities, confidence and self assurance...just priceless for kiddos to learn...

  4. What a darling idea! This reminds me of things I used to do--wow--this is just great. Thank you for sharing! lol You made my morning.

  5. How cute! Thanks for dropping in to my site on Pink Saturday. Have a fun Halloween!

  6. SO cute and love the clowns... I was invited to a party two years ago and didn't know what to be and I knew we had hospital scrubs but no booties and gloves. As I was looking in the old dresser drawers that we keep holidays stuffs handy. THere it is a bunch of Holidays hats, pins and I have a few holiday painted sweatshirts and handmade vest. So there I went as "HAPPY ALL HOLIDAYS".There is an idea. I also had Mardi Gras beads and St. Patrick's Day headband. SO, glad the kids had fun.
    Have a great week!
