Pokémon Birthday Party

Pokémon is all the rage in the grade 3 class this year. So our birthday theme was pretty easy to pick. My son chose to have a party at home, so I set about figuring out how to keep ten boys entertained.

Valentine’s Day Candy Jar Centrepieces

I’ve been slacking a little bit when it comes to Valentine’s Day décor. Every year since my eldest was born, my mom has come over and decorated my house. Seriously. So this year, I wanted to try something a little fun for the boys that they could help create too. I’m just hoping it will last until the end of the month…I’ve caught all three “boys” with their hands in the candy jar tonight alone!

Viking Training I Distressed Birthday Invitation

Hurray, it’s birthday time again! My daughter Calla is turning 9 and she always chooses a theme. This year she wanted it to be “How to Train Your Dragon” and have it at Laser Quest. I’m not a writer by trade, but I did have fun writing the copy. I’m sure however if you asked a real historian (sorry Dad) I’m sure they would take offence to my misappropriation of some words. My daughter loved it though, and I think that’s what matters most!

Hawaiian Stitch Themed Birthday Party and a “Cake Free” Cake!

My son requested a Stitch-themed birthday party. This year was going to be different, I was going to create less work for myself!  To do this, I planned to make him a cake that he would actually eat and do away with the “traditional” cake. I usually make a traditional cake for the rest of the kids and make him a pie. But not this year. This year I had a plan…a Rice Krispies Treat cake! Easy to make, easy to mould, and loved by all. Turns out I am not the first person to think of this. If you Google Rice Krispies cake, tons of great inspiration comes up.
