Pirate Treasure Hunt Clues

Yo ho ho! If you are looking to set up a pirate treasure hunt for your pirate (or any other kids) party, you can organize it in a couple of ways:

For very young children (under the age of 5), simply hide gold coins in your party area, and give the kids small mesh bags to put their loot in! It’s easy and fun. This candy can also be used as the party goody bag.

Ideas for a Great Party on a Shoestring Budget

Planning your next kid’s party on a shoestring budget? Here’s some cent-savvy thoughts:

First off, a birthday doesn’t always need to be celebrated with a big party. Actually, it is a good rule of thumb to not have a traditional party each and every year and to do other things instead. Gather your family around and celebrate by having a homemade cake with candles, and singing “Happy Birthday” together. If you want to include others, like your kid’s friends, just make it a “cake cutting ceremony,” and serve birthday cake and ice cream. For the rest of the time, have the kids play together. No need for presents at this one, it’s more of a simple celebration.

A Celebration of Spring Party

shutterstock_3596927Spring is upon us! The kids are tired of being indoors, drinking hot cocoa, and watching the snow fall. The days are longer, the sun is shining brighter, there’s a hint of flowers in the air, and snow is turning to rain … it’s spring! The vernal equinox is a wonderful time to plan some spring fun with your kids. If you want to mark the entrance of spring this year, either with a spring party or a spring birthday party, here are some resources and ideas to enjoy:

  1. Plant flowers together! Head out to the local garden center, and let your kids pick out the flower bulbs they would like to plant. Have them not only plant the bulbs, but water them throughout spring and watch them grow!
  2. Give your kids a watercolor set and white construction paper, and have them paint their own spring masterpieces to hang up around the house.
  3. Enjoy bird watching! Birds are now migrating north so it is the perfect time to head out to an open field and watch them. Of course, with it being spring, there are many opportunities to feed ducks, watch scampering squirrels, and take in the natural world coming to life.
  4. When a rainy day pops up, pull on your galoshes and go splash in the puddles. Make it fun!
  5. Enjoy playing Leap Frog!
  6. Fly kites!
  7. Play Frisbee. To make it even more interesting, play Frisbee golf. Hang buckets from trees, and have the players toss the Frisbee into the buckets for points.
  8. Purchase small terra cotta plant holders for the kids to decorate with tempera paint. They can paint bugs, butterflies, or anything else they like!

An Easter Birthday Party for Kids

This year, Easter falls on April 4, and perhaps you will be celebrating a kid’s birthday at the same time. Easter is a perfect holiday to combine with a birthday celebration, as it is not only a religious holiday, but also heralds the entrance of spring (at least in the northern hemisphere … I know my friends in Australia, where the long Easter weekend is a huge holiday, will be watching the seasons turn to autumn!).

If you are already thinking ahead to holding an Easter birthday party this year, here are some ideas to get your planning started: Read the rest of this entry »
