They played with them the entire time Nikki was making breakfast and they didn't want to stop when the food was ready! When it was time to eat, we put the face parts away and they used the placemats to eat. After the dishes were put away, the game reconvened.
They had a great time playing "Pin the Face on the Pumpkin" by closing their eyes and trying to place the parts in the right place. I swear I just lost five pounds laughing so hard - maybe that's just wishful thinking, but we sure had fun. :-)
Oh by the way, the mess you see in this picture is really just a figment of your imagination. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! :-)
