Ahhh! My girly’s “friend” party is in a week and her “family” party the day after that! And what am I doing…sitting here in a stupor eating leftover frosting. Ugh, focus Vickie focus! Mmmmm, right after I finish off this cream cheese frosting goodness….ok…done.
Moving on. I’ve been pretty productive this week since I didn’t have any little ones around. The walls are now purple and covered in colorful mushrooms, treat boxes are done, several favors are done, and I just printed some cute quotes. I was going to take pictures and post them, but I kind of want it to be a surprise. I’ll definitely post pics when everything is finished!
One thing I am getting stuck on is games. How do you find games that are suitable for kids of all ages? I like to play team games because I find them more engaging and fun, but individual based games like pin the tail on the donkey are less competitive. So I’m going to test out some new games I have never done before and I’ll let you know how they blow over. The one that I’m particularly excited about is the “tape ball” game. You get a roll of packing tape and plaster a bunch of little prizes all together and wad it up in a big ball. The ball is passed around and the kids then have figure out how to get the prizes out. Oh to be a kid again…wait…I don’t think I ever grew up…maybe that’s why I love kid parties! 🙂
