This week is all about the unicorns because they are awesome and I can never get enough unicorns! I made these adorable unicorn favor bags. You can use this technique to make unicorn gift bags as well. Who wouldn’t love a little gift dressed up as a unicorn. I have some other unicorn fun coming your way later this week but these bags are one of my favorites. I may have an obsession and I may be writing this while wearing my unicorn slippers. Unicorn parties are fun for kids and adults. One of these days I plan to have a unicorn brunch with lots of rainbow fun treats. I got these bags from the dollar store but you can use any white bags, although the handles on the bags worked really well for the ears. For the hair I used some rainbow metallic tissue paper from the party store for the hair. You can use colorful tissue paper as well.

This birthday candy crown is sure to be a hit!

My niece loves the show Peppa Pig. She has probably watched every episode multiple times. I think it is a cute show. Any kids show that you have to watch a million times gets old after some time but it’s a silly cute show. My daughter was obsessed with Team Umizoomi so I could happily go the rest of my life without seeing that show again. Without a doubt when my niece was turning 4 she wanted to have a Peppa party. I made some fun little printable for decorations at her party. I also made desserts and helped decorate. Since she was having her party at a play place we didn’t do anything over the top just a few simple decorations. Hopefully these ideas will give you all some easy to put together inspiration for a Peppa Pig inspired party!
Cars is such a cute movie and every movie needs some snacks! These printable snack boxes are adorable for a movie night. You can put popcorn and chips in them. You could also add some fruits and veggies in plastic bags. It’s an easy do it yourself for parties or movie nights inspired by the cars movies. I have seen almost all the kids movies that have come out in the last couple years. I’ve only seen a couple adult movies because I’m usually with my daughter and asleep by 9. I have to say I think some of the kids movies are really good. The Cars movies are really cute and definitely a crowd pleaser. We do a lot of movie nights in because it’s just way easier and kids don’t always have the attention span for movies out of the house. Plus, it’s cheaper! I like to make theme nights and movie nights extra fun. We pile pillows and blankets on the floor in the living room to watch movies. Cars is the perfect movie for a themed movie night. Have mini chocolate donut tires, fuel up on drinks, and mini car races for an activity.
My daughter turned 6 recently and it seems like the time flies by doesn’t it?! I was looking at her baby book recently. Ok I actually only finished her baby book recently in true procrastinator fashion. There was a cute list of all her likes and first in one of the little books I had. I loved looking back at that and thought it would be cute to have a little birthday questionnaire each year for her to look back and remember what she liked at each age. It’s just a few simple questions for kids to answer about themselves. If they are too young to fill it out mom can fill it out for them. I would also suggest using black sharpie to fill it out to see it better in pictures. Do as I say not as I do! You ca just keep the questions or take a cute picture with your kid holding up the questions. I didn’t plan far ahead for this so I just took a random picture but kids could be in their favorite spot, room, holding a favorite stuffed animal, or with their favorite food in the picture to make it extra fun!
For my daughter’s Moana party I wanted to make some cute cupcakes! Cupcakes are kind of my thing and I like to make simple ones that still look really cute. I decided to make some Pua and Hei Hei inspired cupcakes. The kids absolutely loved these cute cupcakes. I also made a cake but the cupcakes were chosen over the cake and I don’t blame the kids for that because they are really cute! Let’s get this party started!
For the Pua cupcakes you need:
black and white candy melts
pink candy melts
Balloons and streamers are an easy way to decorate any party. You can use them in different colors for different themes. They also are easy to use for some simple party games. The best part is they can be decorations and games all in one! I love coming up with party games. My daughter and I use some of them just to play when we have nothing else to do. You can never have too many ideas for games or activities. Especially the easy kind because who has time to have elaborate games. I know I don’t have the patients and my daughter certainly doesn’t have the patience. These games can really work for any type of kids party theme! They are all cheap and easy just the way I like my party games.
In our house there is a lot of pink! It’s just me and my daughter, which means girl time all the time. Ok she’s not just into the girl stuff she also is obsessed with Star Wars. Dresses, pink, and Star Wars, they go together in our house. We also love princesses and dress up. Really pink candy can be used for anything girl. For kids and adults, I know a few adults that still love their pink princesses! We made this simple pink princess candy bark that anyone can make. It was half me and half my daughter and she is five. You may be able to tell what parts are her because of the excessive amount of sprinkles but it all looks so pretty. There just aren’t enough pink desserts out there. We had to change that.
Every year for my daughters birthday I want to have something special waiting for her when she wakes up. This is complicated by the fact that I am not a morning person and my ability to accomplish anything early is nonexistent. That is why I wanted to come up with some simple birthday surprises. These 15 easy birthday morning surprises for kids work perfectly for the half ass moms like myself. It is a badge I wear proudly because you can’t do it all all the time. Plus, with birthday parties getting more and more extravagant birthday mornings have to be simple. I love to make things for parties but for my daughters birthday this year I am keeping it simple. Its nice to give yourself a break sometimes and keep birthdays easy. Although if you want to go big I have some ideas for that too ;). Do one or more of these ideas for your kid and they will have a memorable birthday morning!
Tea parties are a good time but sometimes they can be a bit dull. I love tea and I love parties. There is sometimes just too much emphasis on the tea and not enough on the party, in my opinion. My daughter loves to throw tea parties for her little stuffed animals but we also like real tea parties too. We have learned how to have a really fun tea party and I want to share how we do it.
For us confetti is always a must but I get that it can be a little messy for some people. Mini disco balls and balloons also work great for fun decorations. Instead of everything all neatly lined up make it a little messy. We don’t need to be too proper. Bright colors are fun for the table clothes and plates. I always love the bright colors and in my house we are on a pink kick!
