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?
