I should have written about this joint birthday party right after it happened. But you all know what happened. I had another school party for Stella, who turned 2 the next day. And you know how that turned out. I’m over it now and finally I can post photos, in between India stories.
If you remember, the theme was supposedly Fancy Nancy. I tried doing everything myself, so it ended up being very casual and not so fancy at all. But thanks to good food, Katy Perry music, art activities and old fashioned games like musical chairs, the kids were entertained.
I’ll skip the decor because I’ll have you know that I am not at all crafty. I always try to be. But when it’s panic time, I just keep it simple.
The only thing I made an effort on were these giant pompom flowers made of tissue. I got the how-to from Martha Stewart. I ripped all of them eventually. The grain of the paper went with the pulling of each layer so I had lots of rips. But I persevered. I made about 10 and hung them over the garage. The kids thought it was fancy enough.
Soph’s mask. Oh look at her two little teeth. They have since fallen off, both naturally. Saved us a trip to the dentist. The second one was a bit traumatic though, she was hanging on to the tooth at school and lost it on her way home.
Kids loved Craft Camp. Check out their Facebook page
We also got 3D Me. Each kid got a little stuffed toy charm with their face on it. For more info, check their Facebook page.
