We discovered one scene that was in the movie and not the book – and so we decided to re-enact this one. In the movie Pippi buys ice cream for the residents of a local orphanage, and then they get into a huge ice cream fight in the middle of the town square. Since ice cream would be super sticky – and expensive! – we decided to use shaving cream instead. Although still quite messy, the girls had a blast smearing and squirting the stuff everywhere.
My yard smelled great for days.
What about you? Are you Pippalotta fans?
