February is a big month for our family, as both LittleMan and SunnyGirl’s birthdays are in February. Every year I give them the option of a big joint party, or separate smaller parties. This year they opted to have a joint Wild Kratts birthday party.
With a Wild Kratts theme, there was only one place that seemed fitting to have our birthday party: Preuss Pets. (more…)
One of the many fun aspects of throwing a children’s party is deciding on the guests’ party favors. These little trinkets and toys that they take home are not just a memento of the fun they’ve had at the party, but also a way of continuing the fun at home.
I like to think I’ve got a good track record, from my “Oh, the Thinks You Can Think” Kit at our Dr Suess party to my Sugar Skull Dolls at our Halloween party.
My latest party favor idea, for our Wild Kratts birthday party, has to be one of my all time favorites.

Its been a long time since we played with contact paper. In fact, here’s a picture of the last time we played with contact paper…
Its that time of year again, the time in which children across the globe celebrate the birthday of a beloved author, the man who took children’s books out of the Dick and Jane era and taught children to love to read with his utterly wonderful nonsense. Unfortunately for Dr Seuss, this is a VERY busy time of the year for our family. Both of our children have birthdays within two weeks of March 2. That means a shopping spree at Build-A-Bear for SunnyGirl’s first birthday, and a tour of our local fire station for LittleMan’s four birthday. But wait, I’m not done yet! This year was extra busy what with the circus being in town, my having enrolled in online college courses, and us still unpacking from our recent move. Needless to say, we had very little time to celebrate with the rest of the world this year. I did manage to throw together a couple themed muffin tin snacks but nothing great.
