My most recent resident event endeavor was our Back to School Party. Last year was the first time the community had this event and I wasn't able to volunteer. Because of that I went in a little blindly, but it turned out really well! The weather was gorgeous and a bunch of people came out.
Here are the highlights:
- Walking Taco's: We had these for our Cinco de Mayo event and they were a huge hit! I had never heard of them before that. Yesterday I ate two. To make a walking taco you need an individual bag of fritos, taco meat, lettuce, cheese, sour cream, salsa or whatever other taco toppings you like. You put everything in the bag and enjoy! We ran out about an hour before the event ended. Nice, easy cleanup!
- Bouncy House: this is always a huge hit for the kids. Towards the end of the event there were like 10 kids in there at the same time (of all ages, too). They decided to play duck, duck, goose. It was cute to watch.
- Egg Toss: Last year they did a balloon toss with very tough balloons. Apparently even after hitting the ground several times they did not break. This year we went with an egg toss for less prep work. Again the kids did surprisingly well. Afterward we still had a bunch of eggs left over and the kids did a mad rush towards them and quickly used them up by throwing them all over the place. It was very interesting.
