End of school year carnival
We decided to have a celebration for the end of the 2012/2013 school year back in May. We thought it'd be fun to have a homeschool carnival. So we got some ideas online, and made some stuff, and invited our next door neighbor over one afternoon. It was really fun!
Penny made decorations.
Lucy made a berry-toss game. I had some random strawberry fabric left over from some project, so I made some quick bean bags to go with this game.
Penny's game was a ball toss. Instead of real live goldfish we put small plastic bath toy fish into the cups of colored water.
Truman's game was a pyramid of empty cans, and you threw bean bags at them to knock them down.
Each game had its own prizes, too - colored pens, candy, whatever. I spent about $10 at Dollar Tree for everything we needed (a lot of it we already had here at home).
The finale was donut-on-a-string contest! Our neighbor won by far. He has a more voracious appetite than Harper children.
We had a great time, and it was a great school year! This kicked off our six weeks officially and totally OFF from school (Memorial Day through 4th of July).
