One of my darling nephews just had his sixth birthday. This year his thing is Bigfoot. So guess what we did? First of all, the big kids ventured out into the woods with a few different video devices and filmed and edited a Blair Witch type documentary of themselves hunting Bigfoot. Footprints were found. A trap was set. And then the trap was dismantled and sadly Bigfoot managed to escape. Then the birthday boy came over (with his dad and his little brother). There was a showing of the film to heighten the anticipation and then we all ventured out into the woods to see if we could spot Bigfoot just for the birthday boy. The dad/uncle/big cousins really got into it. Things were thrown into the distance creating a Bigfoot-like disturbance. Loud bear growling noised were downloaded onto phones and played near the birthday boy. All in all, I think he had a pretty good adventure. Just a little photographic evidence….
Is that it over there?
What was that noise?
The fearless explorers wading through the brush.
Prepared to defend us all.
Practicing being scary.
Watch out Bigfoot!
And guess who must just sit around the house practicing being cute….
