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.
Since I am ridiculously cheap, er, I mean, frugal, I decided to make my own birthday party invitations rather than buying pre-made.
For SunnyGirl’s birthday, we wanted to give her a life-size Tortuga, just like in her favorite show, Wild Kratts. (more…)
We are in the midst of planning a Wild Kratts party for LittleMan and SunnyGirl’s combined birthdays.
Part of the party favor that the other children will receive are creature power suit gloves. (more…)
I am really excited to be taking part in Building Blocks and Acorns’ Fort Building Challenge. All this month bloggers like me are building themed forts at home with their children and sharing them online. Since both LittleMan and SunnyGirl have February birthdays, I built a birthday fort. And since they are having a Wild Kratts party, it is a special Wild Kratts birthday fort.
Its been a while since we’ve posted about our sensory bin play, but with the Wild Kratts theme popping up all this month I thought it was a good excuse to make a Wild Kratts sensory bin.
For this bin I utilized a Create-a-Scene Free Printable which you can download from PBS.org as well as some blue and green party streamers. (more…)
If you didn’t know already, I *LOVE* LEGO. I think LEGO products are a fantastic and fun way to learn through play.
So, because I already love LEGO, it isn’t that hard for my children to convince me to buy them a new LEGO set.
Which has obviously resulted in a massive LEGO bricks collection.
Pictured above is about 1/6 of LittleMan’s LEGO bricks. So maybe his collection is getting just a tiny bit out of hand. (more…)
