My five year old has his very first day of t-ball on Saturday! It will be a very exciting day for a kindergartner. It is also an excuse to have some baseball-themed family fun.
To be honest, the weekend is sneaking up on me. It may be Thursday, but it feels like Wednesday. Does that happen to you too after a long holiday weekend? It's like I lost a day. I need to catch up on my family fun planning! Good thing we can keep things easy and still have fun.
I'm thinking of baseball themed food. I don't necessarily want to focus on ball park food (not exactly healthy). Perhaps veggie sticks and blueberries ("baseball bats" and "baseballs")? French toast stick "bats" and kiwi "balls"? It would be fun to get some peanuts (to go along with the "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" song). I think some homemade frozen treats might be another yummy idea. (Ball players need a way to cool off.)
Activities are easy--family baseball practice after the t-ball game! We can have fun learning the rules of baseball together. I think it would also be fun to gather all of the stuffed animals in the house, and the extra baseball caps we have, and make an indoor baseball team.
I will also on the lookout for some baseball books and videos! (More in my next blog.)...
