Tonight we had our first family night. Instead of the normal pizza and a movie night, I added more fun to it. We got “The Cat and the Hat” movie with Mike Myers from Netflix. This week at school Reese has been talking/learning about Dr. Seuss so I thought this would be the perfect way to wrap the week up.
I pulled out all of our Dr. Seuss books, toys, and games. When the kids got up from naps we read several of the books.
Reese wanted to wear her red and white striped pajama pants and I made her a red bowtie.
We ate our pizza and watched the movie. Reese really loved the movie. It is so cute and funny. Towards the end she got a little antsy because she was ready to play the games. The first thing we did was our “Green Eggs and Ham” puzzle.
Next we played a game called, “I Can Do That!”. You draw three cards. The first card says an action such as dance, penguin walk, etc. The second card tells you where to go such as to the bathroom, to the window, etc. With the cards comes a foam fish in a bowl. The third card tells you what to do with the fish such as hold the fish between your elbows, on your head, etc.
Reese’s cards said tip-toe while walking to the bathroom with the fish between your elbows.
Lance had to hop to the sink with the fish on his head.
After this game we turned Pandora on and played hot potato with The Cat in the Hat doll. We then finished family night dancing to the music. The last song that came on was “We Are Family” sung by the Chipmunks. It was the perfect ending to a fun night!!
