Charlie and the Chocolate factory - Part 1
|Wonka Bar wrapper|
To us the lucky finders of the Golden Tickets (each of us having found one in our Wonka Bars last night!) the gates of Mr. Wonka's factory were flung open at precisely 9:00 AM.
Dolls danced, fireworks ignited and we were met by none
other than the fantastically weird Mr. Wonka himself!
Welcome to my factory. I shake you warmly by the hand.
Don't touch anything! and for heaven's sake
Two of our "dancing dolls".
The Chocolate Factory
Mr Wonka's factory was a child's dream come true. A chocolate river ran down a fudge mountain. The grass, mushrooms, leaves, rocks and flowers were all made of candy and we were invited to have a taste.
"Everything in this room is edible including me! But that, my dear children, is called cannibalism and is in fact frowned upon in most countries." - Mr. Wonka
Chocolate pudding flowed from the mountain. The grass was edible Easter grass.
The rocks were made from chocolate and the mushrooms were meringue.
The leaves and flowers were fondant.
The chocolate mountain
Everyone turned into Augustus Goop, shoveling chocolate
into their mouths as fast as they could!
Next came Mr. Wonka's magical orchard where the trees not only produced fruit, they produced candy fruit!
Lickable Wallpaper for Nurseries
Mr. Wonka next directed us to our very own spot on a sheet of lickable wallpaper.
I melted Jolly Rancher candy and painted it on a sheet of new wallpaper.
Our next stop was The Sheep Shearing Room where a crazy pink sheep baaed and bleated behind a closed door. Mr. Wonka reached his hand in and out came mounds of pink cotton candy for each of us. (After all this time Pace is still a little afraid of the bathroom. He has vivid visions of a berserk and VERY loud sheep!)
Fizzy Lifting Drink
I think this was every one's favorite stop on the tour of The Chocolate Factory! Each child was given a personalized bottle of Fizzy Lifting Drink, a very tasty and highly bubbly Soda Pop. As the child drank he became extremely gassy, so gassy that he lifted right off the ground. The only way to come back down to Earth was to belch, and belch they did!
Not only did Merrill belch on command, he finished his entire bottle while suspended in mid-air!
The winner of the biggest burp was the littlest one to fly, Tuff!
Even some of the moms wanted in on the action!
Bubbles and more Bubbles
Everyone wrote down a guess for the number of gumballs in the jar and the winner is...
...Lauren! Good guessing sweetie!
The winner of first one to blow a bubble was Danii!
