A Supercalifragilisticexpialadocious Day

I had something else planned today, but my friend Kristy told me that today was the 45th anniversary of Mary Poppins... one of my FAVORITE movies...

So we changed our plans and had a Mary Poppins day!

Bert: "Wait a minute, I know that silloutte anywhere! Mary Poppins!"
(Art project: We made Mary Poppins hats for the girls, and Bert hats for the boys.)

Michael: "We are going on a walk in the park..."
(Exercise: Walked in the the million degree heat.)

Mary Poppins: "Just what I suspected, Practically Perfect in Every Way!"
(Drama: We watched Mary Poppins in our hats.)

Mary Poppins: "I think it would be nice, to start with some Rasberry Ice, and then some cakes and tea..."
(Dessert: We enjoyed our own version of Rasberry Ice.)

Bert: "Chim Chimeree Chim Chimeree Chim Chimeree, I likes what I like, and I likes what I do."
(Art Project: We went outside and sketched chalk drawings like Bert.)

Mary Poppins: "Feed the birds, tuppence a bag, tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a bag."
(Outdoor activity: We went to the park to feed the "birds".)

Mr. Banks: "Let's go fly a kite, up to the highest height. Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring up..."
(Outdoor Activity: We went to the park and flew a kite.)

We had a super....cious day! Hope yours was too!

How do you have so much energy? I might be able to do one of those things with my kids, I'm impressed.

I agree with Jenny- the picture of you drinking your raspberry "tea" is the greatest! You look like you are so into the movie, and way excited abut it. awesome. You are just too creative for words Jen.

Did your kids sit through the whole movie? I also love Mary Poppins, but every time I've tried to introduce it to the kids they get bored very quickly and go away.
