My kids started planning their next birthday parties last night (for October and January, so they're on top of things!). The turning-5-year-old wants a Dora party. Her plan is that her older sister will dress up as a lamb, in a costume that my mother is apparently going to have to make for her. Ahead of the party, they'll film Emily in the lamb costume saying that she's lost and needs help. Then, Jenny will dress up as Dora and they will dress Charlotte, the toddler, as Boots. My mother is apparently also going to be making these costumes. At the start of the party, Emily will sneak off, put on her lamb costume, and go hide. Somebody will put on the video of her plea for help, and then Dora and all her party guests will suit up with backpacks and maps that describe the way to where the lamb is lost. Then they will go rescue the lamb, after, of course, conquering several challenges/obstacles and Swiper (not sure who they will make into Swiper) along the way. Their planning was so elaborate and utterly hilarious, especially given the length of time until the party.
