Daddy’s Surprise Party

blog Daddy

Daddy has a birthday coming up next week.  Mommy has been praying about a way for the kids to surprise Daddy.  God provided the perfect opportunity when Daddy had to get the oil changed in the car and run a few errands.  After Daddy left the house, Mommy and the kids got ready and went shopping.  We planned to make dinner, get a cake, decorate, and make cards.

We used the cooking as a learning lesson.  The kids took turns looking for the correct measuring spoon or cup by looking for the two numbers in the fraction.  They are learning to identify numbers.  We also learn vocabulary in everything we do.

They took turns pouring and mixing.  They did a very good job!  They had fun!  The children really like to help out!  They enjoyed doing something extra special for Daddy!

And we surprised him too!  Daddy had no clue that we would throw him an early birthday party!  It was so much fun!
