I need some help.
Chris is getting ready to go out of town for a week and a half. It’s too hot for me to sit outside for long, and I don’t want to spend a ton of money to go out and do things. Given those points, I’ve decided to do “theme” days while Chris is gone that will (ideally) include a favorite book or movie and activities related to it. (Thanks to my neighbor Angie who did something similar while her husband was out of town for the idea.)
I need some ideas.
So far, I’ve come up with a few ideas. One day will be a Strega Nona day. We’ll read the book, do a pasta-related craft, (perhaps dyed pasta necklaces – I’m still working it out), and then for supper, of course, pasta!
Another idea I was considering was a day based on The Very Hungry Caterpillar. For crafts, we’ll make a paper chain caterpillar, and glue cut out picture of food from magazines onto a leaf. We can also go shopping or make some of the foods that the caterpillar eats. Maybe we’ll even make a meal of it.
Maybe another day could be based on Pinoccho. We could make puppets out of paper bags, watch the movie, those sorts of things.
I’m having trouble thinking of enough theme days to fill up the time. I’d like to have 7 days worth of ideas, or even more so that I could use them later.
So, can you help me out? Care to share any ideas?
