A family activity favorite!
You'll need:
 Balloons,
 a safety pin

Do not litter

Please don't  talk, hit, kick or scream before, during, or after the movie

If you have a cellphone, remember to alway turn it off.  It is very bad manners to talk during the movie


SAYING THANK YOU

Thank you  notes are an important part of good manners.  When someone takes the time to buy you a gift, you should always send a thank you card



HERE'S A FUN EXERCISE GAME

Children run around the water sprinkler, and someone turns the faucet on and off...when it is on, all stop running.

No one knows when the water will come on...lots of fun and exercise too.One person is designated as "it" and controls the water faucet.
