Kids Fest Volunteers for 4/20

We need Kids Fest Volunteers! We need volunteers for the following in Mrs. Murray's classroom:
1. Volunteers to make cakes for Mrs. Murray's traditional cake walk (dont' make one big cake, but rather 4 + mini cakes or even cupcakes are great -- they go much further). We'll also be doing a traditional Chinese game involving a marble, a bowl of water and chopsticks - it will be fun. I need 6 volunteers for cupcakes/mini cakes

2. Volunteers to make mini pancakes (the size of oreos). Jing will purchase sweet red bean paste in Raleigh and we'll either send the beans home with you to fill the pancakes (if we get them early) or I'll ask for volunteers to fill them from 4pm-5pm right before Kids Fest (it will be very much like spreading peanut butter on bread , but the size of oreos). These little sweet red bean pancakes are a typical party food in China and taste very much like sweet red bean dumplings (which I've had before -- yum). I need 6 volunteers to make 100 - 200 very small oreo-sized pancakes (one or two batches of pancake batter).

3. Day of Kids Fest: Two volunteers to assemble pancakes - 4:00 - 5:00
Two volunteers from 4:45 - 5:30, 5:30 - 6:15, and 6:15 - 6:45 to help serve the appetizers and oversee the game in our room. The 6:15 - 6:45 volunteers will help for 15 minutes, but will then help clean up and get the children in their costumes for Parade of Flags/Dances at 6:45.

We also need a few people from our room to sign up for food prep, food/drink serving, clean up or parking help (see main sign up sheet on 6-9 door and on the main page of the blog).

See sign up sheet on Mrs. Murray's door or email me at and I'll sign you up.
