Well, we finally made our trip to the fair with a budget that wouldn't include rides, and how can you possibly take the kids to the fair without letting them go on rides? We all know that rides can be well over $50, and I wasn't about to splurge on rides. I quickly searched for deals online and ran across the promotions on the LA County Fair website, and I was so excited not only to find admission coupons for $5, but the Read to Ride program. The requirements are different for each grade level, and both Symphony and Bella's requirements were the same. They both had to read a book, draw a picture, and then write a caption (and the books could have been read throughout the Summer!). For every two books read and reports turned in, they were given 2 ride vouchers...RIDE vouchers, not just tickets four rides! Each ride takes at least four tickets which can quickly add up! There was a max of 6 books/9 ride vouchers, and they each maxed it out!
Friday was spent drawing, writing, and coloring so that the girls could have fun that night and enjoy the rides! I found it quite funny to watch Bella and her competitiveness overtake her as she tried to "one up" her sister in getting it done faster, ha ha!
They had a blast, and what was so cool to me was that they earned their rides ♥
Here's a picture of all their hard work (you can click on the pictures to see them a little closer) :)
