So this year Maggie is taking part in Odyssey of the Mind (more info at the link) and tonight we all got together and started working on their props. Here's the kicker...we can't "help" them. I couldn't even hold a piece of felt while she was trying to cut it...ugh, talk about difficult! We could go over ideas they had with them, ask them to look around for things that might make good props...ask them how THEY would put it together, but we could not "help" them do any of it...yes pop-pop it KILLED me!
I do have to tell you, they worked hard, painted, assembled, and stapled their little hearts out...here are just a couple of the pictures! We basically sat around and made sure that they didn't cut their little fingers off! I am truly impressed with the results of their hard work. Their competition is on March 7th, so keep your fingers crossed...Maggie has three pages of script to learn for their competition.(the kids even had to write their own script, it's really cute) Their problem for the competition is a Candy shop...only the ingredients all have to be healthy...Here are couple pictures from the night...
"hi ya mom"
"what, i'm just chillin"
one more note: Pop-pop feel better soon!!
