The nice thing about having a husband who teaches science, is that we got to use his classroom for our birthday party and it took most of the stress off me, since he conducted most of the experiments (I really had NO idea what I was doing) lol. I have to admit, while I thought the kids were going to be bored out of their minds and think that they were ‘back in school’, this party turned out to be so much fun! The kids, although some said, “it feels like we’re at school”, were ‘ooing’ and ‘ahhing’ with almost every thing we did. So yeah, they were back in school and maybe they learned a thing or two but they still had fun doing it.
You don’t need to be a scientist or a teacher to pull off this type of birthday party. You can do this in your home or better yet outside (it can get kinda messy). This is a great indoor birthday party idea and it keeps the kids occupied with all sorts of projects. My husband did some other cool exploding/fire displays, however he has all the knowledge on what to mix without blowing things up, so unless you know someone who has this knowledge, I would just stick to the basics… Continue reading “A Science Birthday Party!”
I remember when I was in grade school and my friends and I would make these paper crafts that would tell us if we were going to get married, how many kids we were going to have or what kind of house we were going to live in. Remember MASH!? haha Anyways, these paper fortune tellers would give us girls hours of fun during school and after! Continue reading “Fortune Teller Valentine’s Day Cards”
Who doesn’t love CUPCAKES? Kids sure do and what’s better than eating all the cupcakes…decorating them! This was a fun birthday and every kid really enjoyed it (I think I say that about every birthday haha but I’m not gonna lie, they all rock!) Be warned though, there is a lot of prepping for this birthday party.
Here’s the events we did for this one…

Apparently a lot of couples do not allow or want kids at their weddings, which is fine for some, but if you’re like my husband and I, we got married a little later in life and had kids of our own already, plus friends with children.
If you plan on having kids at your reception, it’s probably a good idea to have something to keep them quiet during speeches etc. Here’s a fun printable for you to put on your kids table to keep them occupied. This took me a little while to design, but it kept the kids busy for a lot of the time. I’ll help you out and let you download the one I made, to make your life easier 😉
I would recommend printing Page 1-4 double-sided on a thicker cardstock (white) and print the Front and Back Page on one side. Or print each page separate and then the kids can draw pictures on the blank pages. Fold each page in half and cover all pages with the Front & Back page. You can then hole punch the book and string it with rope, twine or anything else to fit the theme of your wedding. I put one (for each child) on the table, with a pencil and a pack of crayons.
