acting out stories

I’ve mentioned before occasionally that my kids like to act out books, movies, and TV shows.


One of their recent obsessions has been Max and Ruby, and after watching the one where Ruby creates a clubhouse we HAD to act it out.




So, first we had to build our clubhouse and decorate it.


This did require taking all of the bean bags I had just finished sewing and strewing them about the tent as bunting.



Then we ate our snack.  After much debate they decided I was allowed in the club because otherwise I wasn’t going to bring them snack.  I felt that if I’m going to be bringing them a snack than I should get to eat the snack……..


Afterwards we played with our dolls.  They like to be carried in a piggy back ride while yelling very loudly.  I think the key part of that was loudly.


Finally we ended the afternoon with a rousing game of Carcassone.


A nice fun afternoon.  I need more afternoons like this…..
