The Payson High School's Child Development I class threw their very first Toddler Ball on Tuesday, May 13.
It was held in the Child Development Activity Room which also doubles as the "Blue Moo" Restaurant. The theme of the ball was "Under The Sea." Eighteen toddlers ranging in age from 2 1/2 to 5 years old attended the ball.
They were greeted and given sparkling crowns to wear. Ariel and Popeye cartoon cut-outs were made with the help of the woodshop class for the guests to have their pictures taken.
Gary Burris donated his services to take the pictures and print them for the guests to take home. They played games such as Duck, Duck, Goose, Pin the Fin on the Fish, Simon Says and Musical Chairs.
Lunch was served by Culinary Arts II students.
The menu consisted of octopus on seaweed (hot dogs on Ramen noodles), fish shaped sandwiches, vegetable bobbers and fruit bobbers, along with rod and reel breadsticks. For dessert, the toddlers could choose from a chocolate treasure chest cake or a tropical island Jello/pudding delight.
The child development class hopes to have another successful Toddler Ball next year.
