Tyler attended a friend's birthday party today. It was an army-themed party.
The moment he arrived, he had to give a salute at the door entrance. He was
asked to report his name and purpose of visit.
"What is your name, soldier ?"
"Tyler, sir !"
"And why are you here ?"
"To attend Matthew's birthday party,
sir !" Once the 'commander' was satisfied with Tyler's answer, he was allowed to
The first activity was a camouflage competition. There were tubes of
camouflage face paint available. Everyone had to apply it on the face like a
real soldier. Tyler had never done anything like this before so it took him a
rather long time to get the hang of it. He realized that putting on different
shades of green and black was much more effective. Once everyone was ready,
their camouflage had to be tested. A camouflage netting was placed in front of
each person and the person who was the most well-hidden behind the netting was
the winner. Surprisingly, Tyler won the second prize.
Once the competition was
over, there was a short break for lunch. After that, the children were provided
with toy guns and army print sunglasses. They formed two teams and played army
war games. The two groups had a 'war' and fought to see who would emerge
victorious. It was chaotic as the children
were running everywhere and shooting and shouting It sounded like a real war.
The last thing before the party ended was the cake cutting. Matthew had a mango
sponge cake. The children sang the birthday song and Matthew blew out the
birthday candles. That day, Tyler had tremendous fun. He really enjoyed the
camouflage competition. He had fun applying the gooey cream on his face and
looking like a real soldier.
