We’re Having Two Girls…

…for the weekend and I need, NEED your help. There is a children’s choir, Children of the Worldthat will be visiting our church the weekend of December 15.  They asked for volunteers to host two or three of the children. That means they spend the weekend with the volunteer’s family.  Of course we said yes, because we have the space, it’s a great opportunity for us to show kindness and love to someone, playmates for the boys for the weekend, and lots of other good reasons.

We originally thought we’d be able to host boys, but they needed homes for girls, so we switched gears. Now I’m just a little freaked out, because I don’t know the first thing about 10 year old girls. I don’t know, yet, how old the girls are, but based on the picture of them, I’m assuming between 10 and 12.  There are quite a few guidelines regarding what these kids can and can’t do, so we are going to shut down the video games for the weekend and don’t want to spend too much time watching TV and movies. However, I want them to have a super fun weekend and enjoy their time with us. That’s where you come in, especially if you have girls.

What should we do? I’m planning on getting some arts and craft stuff: bracelet making stuff, paints, paper, play dough, Barbies (?). I want them to feel comfortable and have fun and know we love them. I want to hear ALL your advice.  You know I’ll let you know how it goes.  Girls…AHHHH!!!
