Every year May Day creeps on me, I blame it falling smack dab at the beginning of the month. This year I remembered a few weeks prior and and nerd alert, I set a reminder on my phone so I could buy some candies to accompany the popcorn. Many years I have just scrounged the pantry as I am sure many generations of mom's before me have. I am sure that is why popcorn is included, it generally is a pantry staple. I have found kiddos don't really care what is in it, it is more fun just to get something from a friend! Solon loved ding-dong ditching this year and we had TONS more neighbors this year he could deliver to! He went from wearing flip-flops to crocs to his tennis shoes...he needed to be fast!
We assembled them while Vera was napping...
It was a windy day so we forgo-ed the cups quickly and went with bags!
We did make a special delivery to a few friends not in our immediate neighborhood. Solon liked the fast car getaway too!
Here's a video clip of him delivering the goods, he took it very seriously. He was watching a little boy 3 years older than him do it and taking mental notes :). He was so excited when our doorbell rang a few times. Our new non-Iowa native neighbors were caught quite surprise by this fun tradition!
