target always seems to sponsor fun stuff in its neighborhoods,
and this was no exception.
the target family fun fair
— as a part of the shakespeare theatre company‘s annual free for all event —
was chock full of, well, fun!
we were greeted by a magician who made dollar coins disappear, reappear and grow.
once inside we went through several stations:
at station 1 they took head shots.
at station 2 they designed costumes with markers, stickers, puff-balls, colored paper and glitter glue.
at station 3 they viewed a model of a stage and then designed their own on paper.
at station 4 they practiced a few lines with coaching in different emotions.
(oh, the drama! i wish i’d pulled out the video camera.)
at station 5 they designed their advertising posters.
at station 6 they were interviewed, live, on camera about their experiences.
finally (whew!), they took a break from all that hard work
and decorated fans and their own kid-sized messenger bags
featuring bullseye, the target dog, driving a school bus.
i needed that fan afterward.
