Western Blue & Gold
I started off my morning making several batches of popcorn. You can see in this first picture a quart jar of popcorn below the balloons. I don't recall the flavor of Jell-O I used just that it was berry and it would have been blue jello. I used a recipe from Our Best Bites for the berry popcorn. I didn't have time to dig through my book for my friend Sharon's recipe. I had to make extra caramel popcorn because that is a favorite for one of my girls and she wanted to be sure there would be some for her. Two jars went on each table.
The piece below was by the cake, which oddly enough, my son didn't take a picture of. I was surprised because if there is something he likes, there are usually 20 pictures on my camera. I snapped a picture at home to share. I really don't like making medallions. I even made a circle to help when I was getting that center down, but I still find it a challenge. Gobs of hot glue was used on that! The wrapping for the jar and idea came from HERE.
You can see another game behind them, Ten Gallon Hat Toss. They had to get as many cards as they could into the hat in 30 seconds. I didn't find that one a successful game because they stood to close or just chucked the whole deck at once instead of going one by one.
Tin Can Toss - 6 can stacked in a pyramid on the table. They needed knock the cans from the table with a beanbag.
Wild & Weary Trail Relay - they had a "bedroll" (rolled up pillow or small sleeping bag) between their legs. They went several feet to a hula hoop where they tried to "Lasso a Bull" (we just used the backs of the chairs). They went up to the chair to get a broom and soda bottle where they "Took the Cattle to Market" by having the broom in constant contact with the bottle back to the start line.
