Jousting is a great activity for coordination, easy to incorporate academics. We jousted for snowflakes this time.Parents defended the last snowflakes of the kingdom with swords, while kiddos back rode and long lined closer with the nerf guns trying to joust for the snow flakes. It was a blast- the entire arena became a playful battlefield.
One kiddo came up with the ideas of Smores on a Horse...that is what we did. We hid the three ingredients- crackers, chocolate, marshmallows in zip lock bags around the arena- kiddos had to ride and collect their ingredients to make their smores at the end of the playdate. Nice way to finish a winter playdate.
