Cultural Day

Today at Abbey's Kindergarten they had a 'Cultural' Day. The teachers asked the children to dress up in an outfit that represented their culture as well as to bring in some food that represented their culture too for a shared lunch at Kindergarten. I had a think and asked around and decided that since I thought NZ was going to get quite a bit of representation I would focus on Abbey's American half.

My Mum is the best for sewing up costumes at a moments notice (LOVE my Mum!!) So we found a pattern and some fabric and turned little Miss Abbey into an American Cheerleader!



We watched a few YouTube videos of cheerleading before going to Kindergarten this morning just so Abbey knew what she was supposed to do. We were watching them flip and throw each other up in the air etc and Abbey says, with her eyes as wide as saucers, "I can't do that Mum!"

I made Mini American Hot dogs as our food and we had such a great time at Kindergarten! I totally regret not getting a photo of them because they were a HUGE hit with the kids! I think I will definitely make them again for the next party we have.

Abbey Really enjoyed having me there, showing me all the things she could do around the playground!



The Kindergarten had a raffle for a few Prizes for fundraising and WOW!!! We won the First Prize!! Totally unexpected and awesome surprise!! And what a fantastic prize too!! I can't wait to get the new books into the library at our new place!



I have said it before, and I'll say it again I absolutely LOVE Abbey's Kindergarten!! Thanks so much to all her teachers for hosting another awesome family event!
