Throwing a Kid's Birthday Party - The Stress-Free Tips You Can't Live Without

For kids, there is nothing more exciting than their upcoming birthday party, especially when it is filled with all their friends, presents and heaps of fun. For parents, a birthday party usually sparks stress and non-stop running around trying to prepare for the big event. So, rather than get caught in the cycle of panic yet again, here are some tips you can use that will help you plan a fabulous birthday party without all the stress.

Take the Work Out of the Invitations

If you’re used to having to handwrite all the invitations for your child’s party, it’s time to stop the madness and make use of a much easier and faster solution. The Adobe Spark tool allows you to create unique and personalized postcards right from the comfort of your own home. These postcards can, in fact, act as a birthday invitation. You will be able to create the invitations in mere minutes, then print out as many as you need.
You can use this tool to pick the size you want, the layout you want, the postcard template, and the theme. You can use your own image or pick from the stock images, choose a font and much more. You’ll be able to create something that is truly unique and customized and then is able to scratch invitations off the “to do” list.

Reign in the Guest List

While it would be great to invite your child’s entire class to the party, the logistics of that many kids at one time is just a bit much. Do yourself a huge favor and limit the guest list. You can give your child a set number of guests that they can invite, and then allow them to pick who to invite. A smaller guest list will cut down on the work involved, the space needed, and the cost.

Consider a Party Package Outside the Home

No matter how many or how little kids are at the party, hosting it in your home can be a huge amount of stress and work on your part. Nowadays, there are all kinds of facilities that cater for children’s birthday parties providing the space, entertainment, staff, food, and cleanup, so you don’t have to worry about any of the aftermath. However, a negative is that these types of pre-packaged party plans can be pretty pricey, so it’s a matter of weighing the pros against the cons.

Prepare in Advance

Because the day of the party will be nuts, especially if you're hosting it in your home, it's best to do as much as you can preparation-wise in advance. This means things such as filling the loot bags, writing out thank you cards, decorating the house (this can be done the night before), baking the cupcakes or muffins in advance, and ensuring everything is ready, raring to go.

Start Enjoying Your Child’s Parties

By following these tips, you will be able to start enjoying your children’s parties and make them a much smoother time for all involved. You could even ask a couple of adult friends to come along and help chaperone the event, meaning you too can have your own little party.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
