There is something incredible about celebrating holidays...even if they aren't holidays you normally ascribe to.
I know because we did just that with our crew on Monday night.
So, for family home evening this week Aubrey had the fabulous idea for us to learn a little bit about another culture for our activity. She taught us what she had learned about Dia de Muertos -- Day of the Dead, a holiday we don't really keep up on around our house.
Then she passed out these awesome Day of the Dead masks she had prepped and we each got to color one for our activity for the evening.
Oh. My. Fun.
Um, I don't know how often you get a group of kids, both boys and girls. ranging in age from 15 to 6 as well as their parents to sit down and color something for a period of time, but it doesn't happen real often around here.
Parker threw on some music through our speaker and BAM, the fun was on!
Everyone had a different vision for his/her mask, but that is what made them so incredible. I loved that we all got to get creative and enjoy ourselves and even learn a little bit about people in another part of the world all in one activity.
Great job, Aubs.
