What a crazy weekend! We ran from sun up to sun down on Saturday. Part of the fun over the weekend was helping Big C put together a fun way to ask a good friend to Prom. Apparently the kids these days can’t just say, “Hey, do you want to go to Prom with me?” That would be super lame.
We decided that since Easter is fast approaching, it would be fun to use an egg to ask his date.
I blew all of the liquid out of the egg by poking a small hole in the top and making a little larger hole in the bottom. Then I washed the egg out with water and let it dry for a day. We decided the egg had to be a fantastic color, so we sprayed it gold. If you’re wondering, eggs take spray paint REALLY WELL. Just the egg alone was so pretty!
Next we typed up a punny little note that said ‘Here’s an eggcellent idea: Let’s go to Prom!’ Big C rolled it up tightly and inserted it into the hole on the bottom of the egg.
The egg then got the royal treatment by being wrapped in a box with the message “Crack Me”. We put a huge bow on it and left it on her porch with a giant bouquet of Spring colored helium balloons.
The sweet response his date had made this a really fun effort! She was laughing, smiling and dancing around with joy and told Big C he made her year. His response was that it was only March. Funny kid!
Now we make plans for the dance. Have you ever done a creative Prom invite? I’d love to hear so we can stock up on ideas for the future.
