Hunger Games Party HUGE SUCCESS 

03/26/2012 Categories: free stuff movies based on books

Thank you to everyone (all 75 of you!!) who attended our Hunger Games movie release party last Wednesday. I hope you had as much fun as I did with the survival stations (knot tying, edible plant identification, and Wii archery), the Cinna Makeover station where you could get your face painted or a temporary mockingjay tattoo applied, and the Project Runway: Katniss station where you could design an outfit for Katniss.

Some of these amazing Project Runway: Katniss designs are on display on the teen area bulletin board so go check them out!

We also had a SNACK BOMB where we tossed snacks attached to parachutes into the arena for everyone to collect. And the Cornucopia Challenge was awesome!
