Party goodie bags - some parents love to put them together and other parents... not so much. I’m one of those people that love putting them together, and I get so excited when I come up with the perfect treat to send the kids home with. Packing goodie bags can be tricky, though, so I understand why some parents want to avoid that part of the party planning.
It may not seem like it today, but I promise you that picnic weather is on the way! Picnic parties are a lot of fun for all ages, and it’s a great way to enjoy that warm weather that I know you’ve been missing all winter. Although this article focuses on birthday parties, all of the ideas here could be used for other events like a company family picnic, a family reunion or even just a fun playdate.
As the weather warms up, you may notice your children’s energy levels tend to wind up as well. With the emergence of summer right around the corner, children are just itching to run around, kick a ball, swim and be free from the confines of their classrooms and desks. Add that energy level to the apocalyptic-like sugar-highs at most birthday parties, and you might be rethinking even having a summer birthday party for your son or daughter!
