Mostly, the kids just played, but I did have an activity set up for them in the other room. I called them in groups of three and had them make a 'monster truck painting'. Not quite on theme, but they all LOVED it. Even the older siblings. So I consider it a success. :)
This is what they look like when they are done and mounted on constriction paper (see... it IS in theme... constriction paper! (*I am such a dork.))Logan's birthday cake was the easiest I have ever made! I made two wonderful devils food cakes, cut them into pieces after they cooled, added crushed Oreos and gummy worms, and put it in a wax paper lined dump truck... (which was also Logan's birthday gift from me and daddy.)
The cone candles brought the whole thing together and Logan's spent lots of time telling me how great they were. Warms a mamas heart!
