Over the past 13 years, with five children of various ages, I have organized a total of 45 birthday parties. We have had many fun, inexpensive, in-home birthday parties customized for the birthday child’s desired theme. Involving the birthday child also gives them a valuable appreciation for the effort required to host a party.
This is a theme perfect for either gender and is easily adaptable for different age groups. There certainly isn’t a shortage of activity and decorating ideas for this party theme!
Children with winter birthdays might have the good fortune of sharing their special day with classmates, but they also get the short end of the stick when it comes to outdoor activities. If party guests trek over snow and ice to help celebrate, reward them with a spectacular time. Don your hats, your coats, and your sense of adventure!
Baby registries are wonderful tools for helping new parents stock their nursery with the infant essentials every growing family needs. But while registries include important items like car seats and travel systems, they tend to overlook gifts that can help a new mom relax, celebrate, and adjust to her new role in life. The next time you are shopping for a new or expectant mom, consider going off the registry and purchasing one of these thoughtful gifts instead.
