Day 4 of my granddaughter's birthday party prep... To expand upon the camping theme, Heather hung construction paper leaf cutouts from ribbon in her home's entryway and cut a tree trunk and branches from four brown paper grocery bags which she secured with tape in a corner of her kitchen. Here and there, she tucked in clipart deer, squirrel, bird, mouse, frog, and other forest animals.
She spelled "campout" with ABC paper cups that she purchased from my daughter Jessie's fortandfield on Etsy Shop. Inside each cup, she set a LED candle which softly illuminated the forest.
Today is actually M's birthday, but the party with friends is scheduled for tomorrow so it's not on a school night. To make this day special, she opened family gifts, but first... we accompanied her to the mall to get her ears piecred.
