This weekend we are celebrating the Little Professor’s seventh birthday! He’s decided to have a sleepover with a few of his friends in our camper at a local campground. As would be expected, he’s pretty excited at this point. He and the Princess spent some time tonight setting up the loot bags, and of course – Mummy used it as an opportunity to teach.
The Professor is working on division in his math these days and Mummy realized pretty quickly that setting up the loot bags was a great opportunity to take an abstract math concept like division and use it to show some real world application. With a bag full of Hershey Miniatures in front of him, he carefully calculated how many Krackel, Mr. Goodbar, Special Dark, and Milk Chocolate bars each bag would get.
He and the Princess were very careful to be sure every bag had an equal amount of chocolate, Shark Gummies, little personal flashlights & Hotdog/Marshmallow roasting skewers. Of course, we made sure to tell them that the skewers are cooking utensils, and not to be used as swords! I’m fairly sure that it won’t be the last time we say that this weekend.
