In Need

Mixed Media Monday

I need your help. I am in charge of the kid's portion of our community's fall festival. I want to do something along the lines of an old fashioned PTA carnival with duck ponds and such. But the idea of a field day or block party intrigues me as well. And I read an article in either Parents Magazine or Family Fun about a "play day" where communities get together to play, as in tag, and toys.

I recently, in anticipation of moving, took the articles I wanted from my stash of past magazines. I apparently thought I could find the article on the internet, or that I was smart enough to remember everything it said. I was wrong on both accounts. If you remember that article, could you tell me the title and the month it was published.

And if you have any ideas for fun things for kids to do between the hours of 10 and 5 on a Saturday afternoon, let me know that too. Thanks!

  1. What fun!!
    Kids always love a plastic kiddie pool filled with bubbles, and tons of wands - some big and some small. They could stay there all day :) And it could be homemade solution, so it's not too expensive. And rubbing crayons over the pictures until they appear? They always have that at the Indiana state fair.
    I have lots more ideas, maybe I'll come back later!!
