The second part of the class we had a lesson on birthday traditions in the United States. We played some games I remember from birthday parties when I was a child and I had some little prizes. The first game was musical chairs. I used music from my iPod.
I remember pin the tail on the donkey, but I opted for pin the candle on the cake for this class. I gave them each a piece of paper and put out crayons and scissors so they could each make a candle. The cake was a color book page I printed from the internet. The people who were not blindfolded could give directions to the one trying to put the candle on the cake (in English, of course). The shouted directions were not so helpful, as no candle made it to the top of the cake and one was on the curtain and one on the window.
We didn’t have cake and ice cream but I did bring some butter cookies from Cosco to finish the class.
