Whether you’re looking for Easter basket ideas or gift baskets for special occasions, I have come up with some fantastic options. If you’ve never visited the Dollar Isle at Target, here is the 101. It’s awesome! You can gather several dollar items and create the coolest baskets to satisfy any age group. My kids friends are ecstatic when they receive fun gift baskets like these at their birthday party.
On Buckeye Barry’s Blog, they threw a party for their daughter that had a great food table display. I love the shark watermelon and the little “jelly fish” sandwiches. They also made an octopus out of a red pepper.
Planning your child’s first birthday party is a lot of fun because you’re reaching a big milestone. It is always the anticipation of the party to see how your child will react to their very own cake. Here are 5 different party ideas to help you choose a theme for your little one’s special day.
What you need: Dental floss, Saltine crackers, newspaper.
Preparation: Cut the dental floss into pieces. Thread the floss through one of the holes in the cracker and tie a knot. Attach one cracker to each child’s belt loop so that the cracker is lying on their behind. If they do not have a bet loop, you can either use safety pins or tie the string around the waist. Give each child a newspaper wand. To make a newspaper wand, just roll up a few pieces of newspaper into a pipe shape and secure with a piece of tape.
How to play: Set boundaries for the game, generally a large square of space outdoors. The children run around trying to hit each other’s crackers off their string. Once their cracker is all gone, they are out of the game. The child with the largest remaining cracker wins the game.
Note: When I played this game at my son’s party, half of the boys were remaining after awhile so I kept shortening the boundaries until we found a winner.
