      We usually get Capri Sun easy clean up. It can be Cool Whip or Whipped Cream instead of marshmallow cream whatever is easiest to find. I would bring 2-3 whatever you want to bring. Thanks so much for your help.

    Hi everyone it's great to have this Meetup full! We are still missing a few things though. I saw some people said they are coming but didn't list on the RSVP what they are bringing. We can use some napkins, canned pumkin, marshmellow crème or cool whip, drinks like Capri Sun and graham crackers. Could you possibly bring any of these items and update your status so we know what last minute things to pick up? Thanks again for your participation.
