This weekend was a busy one. Birthday parties, wedding planning (not mine), and lots of cool kid friendly events. Saturday my daughter and I attended SocaMom’s Red Carpet Screening of the New Veggie Tales Film: The Little House that Stood. Snow and all, we got our cute on and headed down to our neighborhood library to enjoy the festivities. The event was really nice and a great setting for the kids. At first I was a little skeptical on how well my 4 year old would do using her “inside voice” for a few hours, but she did great. All thanks to the amazing and personable atmosphere created by SocaMom. She set the kids up with red carpet accessories to add to their attire, a formal red carpet glam photo experience, a coloring/activity station with Veggie Tales coloring pages and worksheets. As well as extra games and toys available for those little ones whose attention span was tested during the movie.
Being a mother where my schedule always involves my children, events like this are important. It is rare to find great events that cater to both adults and children, but this was one. My daughter had a blast and I even got caught up in the catchy and lovable Veggie Tales story.
