I’m sure we can all admit that it’s been a wacky and somewhat disappointing year for our children. When they’re young they don’t understand everything. “Why can’t we do all the fun stuff we did last year?” When I found out that our state’s fair would be cancelled I decided to have some fair fun here at home. My original idea was to do one BIG day, but I ended up planning a little treat for all 30 days of September. Below is the schedule and recipe links I used.

  1. Watched the movie “State Fair”
  2. Made Navajo tacos
