How to Throw the Ultimate Kid’s Birthday Party

When your children are young, you’re the one who needs to throw the ultimate birthday party for them. As they get older they’ll have their own ideas and their own expectations, but young children only want to have fun. Each birthday party should be tailored to each child and, because they’re young, it means you can still do it on a budget. Here are five tips on throwing the ultimate birthday party:

  1. Plan it in Secret
The best birthday party is one that your kid isn’t expecting. While you should never pretend that you have forgotten your child’s birthday, you can easily add little surprises that make the big day even more special. This can be anything from buying their favorite dessert to bringing in a beloved family member from across the country. Whatever your child’s age, and whatever your child’s interested in, there must be something special you can keep secret to make their birthday more special.
  1. Let Them Invite Their Friends
When children are young, it’s best to get birthday invitations. These invitations are not so much for the child themselves, but for their parents so that they can plan ahead. You should allow your child to choose who they are going to invite. There’s a lot of social structure to a child’s life, and friendships can end or blossom without you even knowing about it. Give them a number of friends they can invite, and let them choose.

  1. Get Themed Decorations
A party scheme never goes out of style. For younger children, decorating is a simple trip to the party store. Balloons, table cloths, and plates are all a great way to bring a look together. You want to transport your child into a world of their own – a birthday world. A great tip is to match the cake with the decorations, or the decorations with the cake, whichever you have a clear idea on first.

  1. Plan Something Special
The best birthdays are ones where kids can do something special with their friends. A trip to an aquarium is a great option. Children love to learn and have fun together, and aquariums let them do both. There’s something beautiful and inspiring about aquariums, which will make any birthday celebration at SeaQuest a memorable one. If you can’t pay for their friends to go, take the family instead. The birthday will be memorable and special either way.

  1. Plan Activities
Children love to have a bunch of different activities to do. You can have lawn games set out, or even a competition for the children to play with. You can have them bake their own desserts in pre-measured kits. You can have arts and crafts ready to go. It’s easy to make a little kid’s birthday amazing.

There are many tips on how to throw a great party for your child. The secret, however, is making sure that the party is based on your child. On what they like to do, on things they’re interested in, and what they like to eat. It’s their big day after all!

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,
