And in case you missed our last Friday’s Fun For Kids at the King’s…we honored Father’s Day! The afternoon started with a homemade “Oreo” cookie sandwich, some milk, and a few Father’s Day stories. We began with Mina’s favorite: Pink Me Up by Charise Mericle Harper. This book is about a little girl who is really looking forward to going to a pink-nic with her mom. Everyone is supposed to wear pink. However, mom gets sick, so dad has to step in and go. But before that can happen, they have to “pink him up” by wrapping his shoes in pink paper, painting pink dots on his shirt, pink tape stripes down the pants and then VOILA! He is Perfectly Pinker-ific!
Then we read Your Daddy Was Just Like You and had fun identifying with Daddy when he was a kid, all the mischief he got into,and the fun he had before he grew up and became “Daddy.”
The craft project centered around a familiar Father’s Day gift: the tie. The idea was to create a tie photo-frame. And we had quite a time, with an age range of 2-13 years old, sewing a vinyl “frame” onto the tie. It definitely was an adventure for all of us! The moms were troopers and jumped right in to help their kids learn to sew. We persevered and the project came out really cute! Once the vinyl frame was sewn on, the kids slid their stick through the top loop and tied some yarn on either end. Now, they could go home, put a lovely picture in their frame and give it to Daddy to hang on the wall. See more photos on our Facebook page.
We look forward to seeing you at Friday Fun for Kids at the King’s!
