A couple of weeks before the Blue and Gold during den meeting we had the boys make wanted posters.
A local grocery store happily donated brown paper bags, which we cut into a flat paper for each boy. We then instructed them to write why they were wanted and for how much-having them leave a spot in the middle for their picture.
I took each of the boys pictures, did some editing and added them to the posters.
I then tore the bags roughly around the edges and once again inked the edges.
At that same den meeting the boys also made stick-horses, which I will show later in the post.
-red checkered table cloths
-tin cans with flowers and helium balloons
-mason jars with licorice
-cowboy lingo signs
-cowboy joke signs
We hung the wanted posters, along with some cute cowboy lingo and jokes around the walls of the gym
|You could lift the jokes for the answer underneath|
One of the leaders even brought a real saddle for display! The cactus were on the food table and are simply cucumbers with lots of toothpicks poked into them.
-Pulled pork or shredded beef sandwiches
-side dishes (beans, chips, salads) provided by families
-lemonade/water and root-beer to drink
-cookies and root-beer floats for dessert
We served the dinner in disposable pie tins (like ones from Cafe Rio)
|He liked his cookie|
-Boys got awards and cowboy hats (from dollar store!!)
-Horse Craft table (for all kids when done eating)
-Group participation old west story
-Line dancing- just taught one quick dance
-Stick horse races
|Each boy got their cowboy hat when they got their awards|
|Made paper horses with clothespin legs, googly eyes, and yarn hair|
|Line Dancing! And yes that is my son pouting behind my husband|
|Sick horse races|
It was a great night and all the boys had a fun time and everyone enjoyed dressing up.
|He loved his root-beer float!|
