Planning a Birthday Party

Jun 10, 2011 | By Cari Hale
There's no shortage of Dora the Explorer plates and Backyardigans napkins at the big box stores, but if you're looking to be a bit more creative with your children's birthday parties you might as well start here.

Whether they're turning 1 or 10, planning a party can be a lot of work. It most certainly helps if you have a theme to work from, but how do you even choose the theme?! Going off your children's likes and interests is a great place to start, but it's fun to take it a bit father too.

Here's some great birthday party theme's we're loving right now.

Scavenger Hunt

For older kids, plan a scavenger hunt that takes them around the neighborhood, and for younger kids plan a hunt that takes them around your home, yard or local park. Consider having the clues relate to a favorite interest of birthday boy/girl and the end prize be the "treat bags" that each child will take home.

Along the hunt there can be clues that lead to game stations, friendly contests, crafts or similar activities. Have each child come dressed as detectives and ready to search out their clues!

Tea Party

This is a favorite among us girls! Whether at your home, a park or a  nearby tea house, any girl will love getting her friends together for an afternoon filled with girl talk, tea, cookies and all things "girl". For entertainment, try playing the Tea Party Game, doing a simple craft (such as paint a ceramic tea pot and cups) or decorating t-shirts. Older girls might even love having tea tasting stations filled with different flavored teas. (Play a matching game and have the attendants guess what flavor of tea they are sampling!)

Chefs for a Day

Check and see if any family restaurants in your area will host a cooking party (smaller, independently owned restaurants are more apt to offer this than large chains). The kids can enjoy a tour of the kitchen, refrigerators, etc. and then practice being a chef as they make their own pizzas or dress hamburgers in the restaurant kitchen.

If there is not a restaurant in your area that offers services such as those, no worries you can turn your own kitchen into a restaurant for the day! Have different stations set up so kids can make their own appetizers, meal and dessert. For example: have kids mix a dip or dressing for a fruit salad, or veggies, have them roll out dough (previously made) for pizzas and then top it, and finish it up with them icing their own cupcakes or cookies. While everything is cooking have food-related games ready for the kids to play. (Such as memory, Jeopardy, decorate their own place-mat or melamine plate)

Spa Party

Gather the girls together for an afternoon (or evening) of nail painting, hair do's, makeup, and pedicures! The girls will love performing the services on each other, while watching a favorite movie or listening to their favorite songs. Send each girl home with a manicure set- nail polish, oil, nail file and a yummy scented lotion. If you dare, you could even allow the girls to have a sleep over and enjoy a delicious breakfast with them in the morning!

Camp-out Party

The boys will love this! Set up a tent in your backyard or a nearby campground and listen to the boys tell ghost stories all night long! Roast hot dogs and marshmallows, sing camp songs, teach the boys how to build a fire or how to set up a tent. Before it gets too dark have fun outdoor games ready such as a 3-legged race, water balloons (weather permitting), and capture the flag.

Wet Happens!

Jun 08, 2011 | By Cari Hale
Wet happens.
Spills happen.
Snacks happen.
Diapers happen.
Sippy cups happen.

So what's a mom to do? Let us help you out. Get a "Wet Happened" bag. They're ideal for everything from grapes to crackers, wet swim cloths to bottles and paci's.

This handy snack bag (7"x7") is ideal for diaper snacks, car snacks or school snacks. The inside is conveniently made from FDA approved, BPA-free, PVC lining. (Basically, it's safe, reusable, washable, and durable!) Send it in to school in your children's lunches to cut down on all the plastic bags that are just as easy to use, and the zippered top is just as secure.

Or, if you have more gear to carry that what fits in the snack bag you can upgrade to the larger bag (11"x14"). The zippered top and interior lining is just the same as the snack bag, only you can fit way more stuff! Try diapers and wipes, change of clothes, wet swimwear, bottles or sippy cups.

Don't think these are just for the kids, either. How about using them for your gym clothes, in the car, or for your snacks as you run errands (and kids!) everywhere!

Boon- Modern Products for Modern Babies

Jun 06, 2011 | By Cari Hale
Boon products are sleek, modern, practical and oh-so functional. There isn't a snazzy feature they haven't thought of to make your life with a baby easier. Thank goodness!

If this doesn't catch your eye, nothing will. Boon's Pedestal  Highchair with Pneumatic lift is exactly what you need to make mealtime pleasant. Easy up, easy down with a simple step on the orange button, removable tray (dishwasher safe!) and removable seating pad all make feeding your Itty Bitty's that much easier.

Need to move the highchair out of the way when you sweep? No worries, simply unlock the foot break and the chair glides on wheels. Lock it back up to keep baby in their place. How did we live without such convenience... we're not sure!!

The streamline design, modern appeal and one-piece plastic chair all make for a beautiful, functional highchair like we've never seen before.

Teaching kids to eat snacks, cereal or dinner from a bowl can be rather messy, wouldn't you agree? Luckily, Boon has a solution for that, too! The Catch Bowl has a sneaky little runway that extends towards your child to catch any food that trying to escape. The runaway food ends up back in the bowl, and ready for the next bowl-to-mouth attempt!

Oh, and another little secret: the bottom is a suction cup so it sticks to the table or highchair tray. No more experiments involving gravity.

It's no secret that hand-eye coordination in youngsters is not all that great. And for good reason, too, since they're still learning. Benders are fantastic spoons and forks that bend any which way so you can teach your little one to feed themselves. Bend the Benders at a sharper angle for younger children, and slowly straighten the angle as they get older and more comfortable with utensil feeding.

There you have it. All your motherhood woes have been solved...at least when it comes to feeding!

Love on Dad

Jun 03, 2011 | By Cari Hale
Father's Day is just around the corner, so don't forget to show dad all your love!

Kicky Pants bamboo coveralls and tee's are not only soft, comfy and perfect for summer, but they pay tribute to the best dad on Earth- yours!

They're only available leading up to Father's Day, so don't procrastinate. How about calling our good friends at Allison Rodgers Photography and getting some cute family photos with matching "DAD" tee's! It will be so much cuter than a "World's Best Golfer" coffee mug :)
