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 »

A Leprechaun Trick for St. Patrick’s Day

A Leprechaun Trick for St. Patrick's DayLooking for an easy, budget-friendly special activity to do with your children this St. Patrick’s Day?

I love the idea of having your kids wake up to a clumsy leprechaun’s trail of havoc!  Who could have possibly knocked over a chair, pushed a small (unbreakable) item off of a table, left books all over the living room floor, scattered cookies around the kitchen counter, and whatever other  clumsy tricks your leprechaun may have pulled?

Basketball Party Ideas

Basketball is an excellent theme for a birthday party, especially if your kid plays on the school team and/or loves to watch the sport during March Madness and beyond! Basketball is such a fast-paced, team-orientated game it is sure to bring tons of fun to a party.

This party can be done in your own driveway if you have a basketball hoop and enough room, at a park with multiple courts available, or at a local gym, which may be the best choice if the weather is poor and you are looking for an indoor venue. The YMCA may be an excellent choice as an example.
