I decorated last night so that the kids could figure out our theme when they woke up this morning. It took them a few guesses!
I covered the table with curtains that looked like mosquito netting and stuck a few bugs on it. I had bought a pack of bugs that grow when you put them in water, and I made a spider web on the floor using painter’s tape. This was probably my son’s favorite part of the day.
We played a game where they had to stay on the blue tape and took turns being the spider trying to catch the bug.
But first, we put on butterfly tattoos and had a cute appetizer.
Grubs for dinner! Actually, dinner was gnocchi, chicken, spinach, Parmesan and tomatoes with olive oil. It was so good!
After dinner, we made antenna with leftover headbands, pom poms and pipe cleaners.
But first, a few games!
Bug Collector: I made cards with all the bugs on them from Bug’s Life and there are 6 cards that hurt bugs. (spray, bottom of shoe, swatter) Lay them all face down like Memory. (Or you could just have them in a draw pile) Collect 4 of the bugs without picking up a painful card. Drawing a bug killing card means you have to mix your whole hand back in with the facedown deck.If we picked up a Hopper, Molt or PT Flea, we just laid them back down, losing that turn.
We headed outside to play a game. I drew a ladybug on a red balloon but it didn’t last long. Next I gave them a yellow balloon and drew angry eyes and wings on it like the bird in the movie that terrorized the bugs. They loved hitting it back and forth, trying to keep it from touching the ground.
Lastly, we watched the movie, well, my husband and I fell asleep, but my 6 year old, who was afraid to watch, actually watched the whole thing. We are really hoping that the kids will try out the 3D show at Animal Kingdom this year!
