I don’t know what I was thinking when I scheduled these past few months of my life. I bought a house, moved into the house, got married on top of working AND then decided I should do an Angry Birds program, Star Wars Reads Day, and My Little Pony Party on top of all the other things. So, needless to say, I didn’t do as much for these events as I wanted to but the attendees didn’t know that and they had a blast so yay for that!
Today was the My Little Pony Party. I scheduled it for a day our schools had an early dismissal because of a teacher in-service so it wasn’t connected to a holiday or anything, the kids just got out early and needed someplace to go. I made sure to REMIND parents of this anytime they mentioned the program’s 2pm start time.
I advertised the program for ages 5 and up and made sure to mention that it was for both bronies and pegasisters so everyone felt welcome.
It worked! We had a great turn out, around 50 kids, and the age range was a lot of early elementary. They all loved it!
Make yourself as a pony (blank pony coloring sheet with crayons)
Make a pony bookmark (corner bookmarks + one of these ponies glued on top)
Make a “cupcake” (accu-cut cupcakes with some tissue paper for “extra frosting”)
Make a unicorn horn (found here)
(I have a Pinterest board full of brainstorming, if you’re curious)
And, of course, a Scavenger Hunt because I love sending the kids into the library and they seem to love it too. I gave them a gem at the end because they were searching for Spike.
Here are a few photos of the cuteness. BRACE YOURSELF:
