This was the first theme night I've been able to pull off in a while, but it was so worth it. I don't know how many times the kids thanked me...they had a blast. It seemed like a lot, but it was minimal set up and I even involved the kids. They found most of the objects we needed and filled the lunch sacks. They want to set it up tomorrow for a play date with some friends. (all except for ice fishing)


I found all these ideas in the Family Fun magazine March 2011 edition.
