The Grand America has been hosting "staycations" for local guests. These weekends include a Friday night movie by the pool and an ice cream bar on Saturday. Turndown service includes milk and cookies and a welcome surprise from JouJou, the hotel's toy store. Last night, the movie night featured The Wizard of Oz. My mom and I got to create and teach a kid's craft to get all the kiddos excited for the movie.

For they boys, we designed a flying monkey toy that they got to assemble.

And for the girls, we made wands and let them decorate Glinda crowns. Isn't that glitter paper awesome?

We designed this backdrop so that parents could take their kiddos' pictures with their final projects. grand america_wizard of oz-08

The staff at the Grand is a-mazing. Every experience with the hotel truly is Grand. My mom and I are so excited to join them again next month for Monster's Inc. and E.T.
