Michael and I are so excited about the Oscars on Sunday. We love movies and have been “working” diligently to watch as many Oscar contenders as we can before the big night.
I hadn’t really planned on involving the kids too much in our Oscar celebration. (When I say Oscar celebration I mean us watching the Oscars – maybe with some cocktails and appetizers.) I figured they would be doing their own stuff upstairs in the playroom. (I did run across on Babble some cute Oscar crafts to do with kids.)
I think Rose would be into watching the stars on the red carpet before the Oscars. She likes fashion and is interested in some celebrities. The kids haven’t seen very many of the contenders so they don’t really have a dog in the fight. (Although she loved “Hugo” and I am sure would vote for it for Best Picture.) I think Rose may wander in and out for the Best Make Up, Costumes or Music Awards. Normally she is interested in the Best Animated movie but I think her favorite (“Tintin”) wasn’t nomimated. (How did “Tintin” not get nominate? I would vote for it for Best Picture!)
So is it OK for the Oscars just to be adult fun or should you try to involve the kids with crafts, food or fashion? Will you be watching the Oscars? What will you do with the kids? If you host an Oscar party will the kids be involved or sent to the basement to do their own thing with their buddies?
