Today, Cliodhna rounded up some friends to horse around with her.

The weather last week was glorious here, but this weekend was cold. Like, we saw some white stuff cold! Our all outdoor party had to be adjusted (and so did my attitude about it) to mostly indoors. I decided it really was a “First world problem” and it would sound pretty shallow if I complained that we had to whip up a last minute Pin the Tail on the Pony, instead of play Shoo the Fly outdoors!

The Party started with a visit to the Branding Station(aka the bathroom) for some face painting.

Next, it was coats and mitts on for a quick sack race, and bobbing for apples. Oh, yes I did! Who can say they have done these activities while it was snowing?

Enjoying the apples while listening to some stories.

Cliodhna’s just fell as I snapped the picture.

Hey, who can stack the most cubes on their tongue?? This was a hit, of course.

On to Pin the Tail on the Pony (with a good attitude about it)

Then it was off to the stable where Cliodhna rides. The girls worked together to brush the horses, and then each got a turn to ride them!

Today we celebrated Cliodhna’s (soon to be) sixth birthday! The Theme was the story of The Mitten by Jan Brett.

We had mitten snacks

DSC_0700 DSC_0712 DSC_0648

Did Mitten crafts

DSC_0624 DSC_0623 DSC_0617

And played Mitten Games!

One game was reaching in to an oven mitt and trying to guess the object by feeling it with eyes closed.

Another was playing hot potato with a bag of mittens. When the song stopped the child would reach in the bag, without looking, and pull out one mitten. The winner is the first child to get a set of matching mittens.

A relay to open a tootsie roll with mitts on…

DSC_0688 DSC_0687 DSC_0685 DSC_0684 DSC_0682

And by far the favourite game was The Mitten in the Snow Parachute game.

Each child had an animal mask from the story, and when their animal was called, they squeezed in under the parachute until the bear sneezes at the end and they all go toppling out!

( no pictures because the adults were doing the game!)

Here is the song- Tune : Farmer in the Dell

The mitten in the snow
The mitten in the snow
Help us please so we won’t freeze!
The mitten in the snow.


A mole squeezes in
A mole squeezes in
Help us please so we won’t freeze!
The mitten in the snow.


A rabbit squeezes in

Help us please so we won’t freeze!
The mitten in the snow.


A hedgehog squeezes in

Help us please so we won’t freeze!
The mitten in the snow.


An owl squeezes in

Help us please so we won’t freeze!
The mitten in the snow.


A badger squeezes in

Help us please so we won’t freeze!

“A-choo”
The bear says, “A-choo!”
The bear says, “A-choo!”
All the animals fly out of
The mitten in the snow!

Along with generous gifts for the birthday girl, each friend also donated a brand new pair of mitts for a charity.
