Seriously. At the end of the day, there might be nothing more clever than 15 kids playing with four cardboard boxes. Ok, I pimped them up to look like firetrucks (could double as Mickey Mouse for Halloween!) but you can’t imagine how much cake and icecream a kid can burn off running around a cul-de-sac with a cardboard box! Whee!
The test drivers gave full approval of the road test – two thumbs up!
There was, unfortunately, one spectacular crash. Some spectators doubted the authenticity of the accident, claiming it was a sugar crash instead of the real thing. No blood was spilled, nor bandaids administered.
Here are the gift bags – yes, at 4:30 am I thought it would be cool to try to make it look like they were on fire. Maybe it worked, maybe it didn’t, but at least Natasha noticed! (thanks!). I made fire hat and firetruck cookies, iced them with Royal Icing with meringue. Yum!
And, here’s my little fireman, all happy to be three. Unruly lid of very-fast-moving-child in foreground. Couldn’t be bothered to crop the pic…I feel I’ve done enough crafty things for one weekend.
