In the spirit of all things childish, I put together a candy guessing jar for the event. Teens often complain to me about how unfair it is that the children's summer reading program has one on their reporting table every week, so this was their chance. The guesses ranged from 42 to 2000...some people need to work on their estimation skills. Zaire was the winner with his guess of 585 because the the jar actually had 621 pieces of candy in it.
Huge thanks to my son Nat, who graciously lent us his Mr. Potato Heads, army men, and all three Toy Story movies. (Although, he was a bit puzzled about why the big kids wanted them...!)
Here are our silly potato pictures:
