Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Catching Fire Challenge

Catching Fire Challenge

Our library offered a Catching Fire Challenge, and my girls were really excited to go!


Only about 5 kids showed up, but the girls still had a great time. They started off with a game of trivia questions, and my kids were put to shame by the others. Poor Allison only scored 0 points, which shocked me because she is a HUGE Hunger Games fan! Then again, the other kids were raising their hands before the questions were finished, and she wasn't catching on that you could do that, hehe.

It was followed by a Cornucopia Challenge where the kids had to race (walking) to the center to grab survival items.

 
 

A story was read, and if you had they key word items you either gained points or lost them depending on the item. Finally, Allison got on the board, scoring 30 total points. She was still the big loser in the game though, so we told her she had to be Rue, not Katniss. She wasn't amused.


They finished up the challenge with a snack. You were supposed to make a campfire with pretzel sticks, carrots, Doritos, and fire ball candies.

 
I don't think it looks like much of a campfire, but whatever's clever, right?

They also got a parting gift for participating. An orange drawstring backpack.


All in all, the girls really enjoyed this event much more than the Harry Potter event they had a few weeks ago.

Did you see Catching Fire this weekend?

  4. I'm glad it was more fun that the other event. :) Libraries are awesome for putting in the effort to provide free,fun things for the kiddos!

    We didn't see the movie, I tried to go see 'Frozen' though and they told me it wasn't out yet, hahahaha (I looked online, but I looked by movie name, not noticing the date was in the future...duh). ;)

  6. wow, we never ever have stuff like this here. I loved the first part of the movie but I hear part 2 is not as good.

  15. That looks like a fun event. My husband and I went and saw both the movies together the day before Catching Fire was officially released. Elliott is still trying to convince me to take him to see it now, but he is going to have to wait a while.

    We actually haven't seen a movie together as a family for several weeks now, which is a little strange for us. Usually we go at least every other weekend it seems. If we have time this weekend, we will probably see Frozen, but since we are celebrating Christmas, among other things, I'm not sure we will have time.
