We started at 5:30 and had dinner. I created a menu with coded names for the 20 dinner items - including utensils. Like "medusa's hair" for spaghetti, "vampire goop" for spaghetti sauce, and "road splitter" for fork. The kids had to fill out 5 things they wanted for each of the 4 courses. Then Ben and I served up their orders. It was pretty funny! I think the kids really liked it, too. They were always excited to see what crazy combination they ended up with for a course. They really only figured out the clues once the food started arriving. "Oh this is that."
After dinner we played some "Minute to Win It" games. They were fun, too. And funny.
Then it was time for
The movie ended right before 9 and that was perfect timing! The kids all left and that was that!
A fun party for a 12-year old and his siblings and friends.
