Family Game/Literacy Night

Thursday night, Hannah Rose’s school hosted a Family Game/Literacy Night.  It was a night of games, fun, and books for the whole family.  It was also the kick-off night for the school book fair.

Chris and I had had other plans–our small group meets on Thursday nights, and this past Thursday was the first night of a new 7 week study.  However, we decided it was more important to be there for Hannah Rose so we opted to attend Family Night at her school instead! 

Hannah Rose was very happy to see us there!  She and her mom literally pulled into the parking lot right behind us!  Hannah Rose couldn’t wait to get out of the van and run over to give her daddy a hug!

The different classrooms had different activities.  The first activity that Hannah Rose did was arts and crafts.  She made a snowflake out of a paper coffee filter. 


After that, there was a games room that we went into.  Hannah Rose really had fun in this room!  There was an elephant on the carpet that spewed out butterflies and you had to try to catch them.  She was laughing up a storm at this!




There was a movement/music class where she got to make a musical shaker.  (A decorated paper plate folded in half stuffed with beans and stapled shut.)  She even got to put streamers on it!


Then we checked out the book fair where we bought a couple of books:  “Me and My Dad” and a Disney’s “Magic Kitchen Cookbook.” 

I headed over to the story room where I had volunteered to read a story.  I read “Baby Bear, Baby Bear What do you See?” by Bill Martin and Eric Carle.  I had a small audience, but it made it more intimate!

After I was done reading, I found Hannah Rose in the Cake Walk room.  She won!!!  She got to pick out one of the bigger cakes.  We thought it might be a butter gooey cake, but it wasn’t.  It was strawberry.

To finish off the evening’s festivities we meandered over to the cafegymitorium where there were refreshments and books for every child (all they had to do was collect four stickers–one sticker from each activity room, of which there were more than four, and they could pick out a free book!).  Red Robin was there, too.  Hannah Rose was completely enthralled with him!  She loves to be around different “characters!”  


Because we had a Winter Storm warning and Friday’s weather was supposed to be really really bad, Hannah Rose came home with us Thursday night instead of coming over on Friday.

All in all, it was a good evening.  Hannah Rose had a blast and both Chris and I agree we made the right choice in deciding to go!
