Emilie's 10th b-day was a blast!
She enjoyed a slumber party with 3 friends- which included lots of giggles, dress up, American girl play, games, pizza, and a "Bear Hunt."
The "Bear Hunt" was really a scavenger type riddle hunt. I created clues or directions for the girls to follow, and then taxied them all over our little town to their riddle's destination. Once there they posed for pictures, had an activity, and were given the next riddle.
It watches the lights change to red, yellow, or green,
There is nothing in Oakhurst it’s eyes haven’t seen.
It talks and it snarls to men from England named Charles,
While posing quiet well for a photo with Marie from Portugal.
It’s relatives are known to hibernate in winter,
Yet this one resides at our towns center.
Too much candy will make them rotten
Too much soda will cause decay
Too much sugar will keep him drilling
Not enough brushing and he’ll give you a filling
He’s good friends with a fairy who visits in the night
To leave you a dollar in exchange for a treasure that bites
Visit him twice yearly to keep them pearly white
Or when your 82 they will soak by your bedside at night.Wash, rinse, comb, trim
Curl, dry, set
Brush, spray, layer, perm
Black, blond, brunet
This place is “COOL”
And will quench your thirst
With beverages made just right
Warm, steamed, blended, or iced
Drizzled with caramel, what a tasty sight
Choose hazelnut, chocolate, or irish cream
It’s yummyness in a cup...
Know what i mean jelly “BEAN?”The next part of the fun had the girls following direction.
They went to a local super market, here they were instructed to buy just 1 item each from a bin. The item had to begin with an initial from their name. They were relieved when the candy bins supplied their need. They were pleased at the check out counter when their items were 6 cents and under (one item was free because it was unweighable). Their next and final mission was to find a specific employee. Once found she instructed them to go to the bakery, purchase plain cupcakes, and to race to the baked goods isle to get 1 topping each to decorate their cupcakes. They had just 3 minuets. Ready, Set, Go! We topped the fun off by decorating and devouring our cupcakes together, and singing one more hApPy BiRtHdAy to Emilie!!
Special thanks goes out to my friend julie for her creative help. Thank you also to all the businesses that participated. We live in a GREAT community!
