Quinn’s Very Own Gummy Bear Party!

I am so very proud of this boy of mine. Soon after Christmas, he was selected to participate in a 2nd grade Envision Project. Instead of normal homework, he was responsible for planning a party of his choice. He had 10 weeks to do it and LOTS and LOTS of specific requirements. He worked hard and was so creative in planning a one-of-a-kind Gummy Bear Party. He made maps, budgets, banners, an invitation, games, crafts, a final portfolio and so much more. He was super proud of his work!! Part of his grade was presenting all of his project to his class. He was quite wordy and shared much more than necessary…cracked me up.

It was evident that he was proud to share everything he’d done…and, the gummy bear give always and game made his spot quite popular. It was so fun to step back and watch him.
