Birthday Party theme: Foxes

I still have yet to mail out Thank You cards from the party, but here’s my blog on it LOL

Our littlest one has been obsessed with foxes since Zootopia came out last year.

She even has a Nick Wilde sweater. She wore it to Animal Kingdom and scared Mickey Mouse pretending to be a fox.

So, a Fox party was definitely in the cards for her. Finding fox party decor, on the other hand, not so easy.

She started preschool at the beginning of the month, so every Wednesday and Thursday leading up to her party were used for shopping, ordering, crafting, etc.

I started by getting these at Walmart:

They ended up becoming a banner for the party, hot glued to twine.

Then, I headed to good ol’ Joann’s. I got felt for felt masks, fake flowers for headbands, orange and black card stock. You know, my supplies!

Camping Birthday Party

This past week, my husband turned 33. It’s not a big milestone birthday but I still wanted to do something for it. So, I planned a camping party, since we are going camping next weekend!

For ideas, I scoured Pinterest and made my own Camping Party board there.

We made this sign from scrap wood laying around in the garage. I accidentally spelled our name wrong! LOL I fixed it the day of the party.

Valentine’s Day with kids doesn’t have to suck

IMG_1678

I know Valentine’s Day is supposed to be all about your significant other or spouse, but I’ve ALWAYS celebrated it as a day of LOVE. We send Valentine’s to grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and even old co-workers! So, the fact that my husband and I don’t have “Big Valentine’s Day plans” isn’t really that big of a deal to me. But if you are stuck with your kiddos this weekend, here are 7 ways we have been celebrating WITH the kids so that Valentine’s Day with kids doesn’t have to suck:

1) DONUTS! Because who doesn’t love donuts?!

2) Mommy and me Mani/Pedis

I used Jamberry on my nails and paint on my toes and the girls’ toes. You could turn this into a date and actually go to a nail salon, but I just DIYed it at home.

3) Ice Skating!

If you have a rink nearby, this is a fun option! We are thinking of taking the kids but aren’t sure they even make skates big enough for them! Maybe next year!

4) A boat ride

We did this last year and it was awesome! We took a boat out of Clearwater Marina and did a dolphin cruise.

7) Learning Activities

I got a few printable here to practice our ABCs and color recognition. I also made a name puzzle and a number matching game.
