All Hail King Julien Party

We had the pleasure of attending an advanced screening party to watch All Hail King Julien, and learn the steps to King Julien's dance and have fun King Julien style. We also bought the fun home as we celebrated watching the rest of the episodes at home with party hats, balloons, squawkers, and New Year's Eve glasses.

Rice Krispies Multi-Grain Shapes Crafternoon

Whether it is family breakfast or having an afternoon snack, it is always great to have easy, nutritional food choices for our children to enjoy. My children enjoy eating cereal mostly for breakfast, but occasionally they would eat it as snack as well. I really enjoy using the regular Kellogg's Rice Krispies to make snacks for my children, and find my inspiration for recipes from their site.

Our DohVinci Art Class House Party & Giveaway

DohVinci from the makers of Hasbro's Play-Doh comes a new, customizable craft kit that allows our children to have complete control...without the mess! It is very easy to use; all we have to do is insert the deco pop into the styler, close the styler and start creating fun designs. This type of deco is fun for anyone. The best thing is it is easy to clean up, which was awesome when I hosted the DOH VINCI Art Class House Party.

Animal themed LEGO party

I sent this invitation to some friends last weekend to bring their little ones for a LEGO party in our home.  We were so excited and thrilled to organize this LEGO themed party because my children are huge fans of LEGO DUPLO.
Both boys and girls loved the variety of Animal themed LEGO DUPLO and we heard lots of farm noises in our home during the party :)  Children played with our previous collections of  LEGO DUPLO toys plus these Toddler line products such as the build and play cubes, pull along, building set and brick box.  
These Toddler line LEGO DUPLO are mostly for children age 1 1/2 to 3-4 year, however children over 4 will enjoy these as well.  The build and play cubes have cute windows that will encourage children to play peek-a-boo.  The pull along fun wagon has 15 pieces that encourage children to build on the base and pull the wagon. 
Children really enjoyed hearing the stories from the "read and build" LEGO DUPLO books such as the Busy Farm and Let's Go Vroom!  
Following the step-by-step pictures on the books to build and see the characters becoming 3D is very exciting for little ones.
Children also enjoyed playing on our LEGO DUPLO Zoo app on the iPad during the party.  
This interactive app is for children from 2 to 5.  Our LEGO DUPLO fans will enjoy solving the challenges they come across as Jack Rabbit and Giraffe's goes by air, land and water to make it to Lion's birthday.  
For the party I served, Beetroot cheese sandwiches, Lego cake pops, Carrot and celery, Animal crackers and juice.
To make the beetroot cheese sandwiches you will need...
cream cheese
steamed or boiled beetroots grated
sandwich bread

After placing the cheese and beetroots in the sandwich bread cut it into shapes.
To make the LEGO blocks cake pops I used...
a box of chocolate cake
1/2 cup to 1/4 cup chocolate cake frosting
white melting chocolate

Bake the chocolate cake following the instructions on the box.  Then crumble and mix it with cake frosting.  Children liked helping prepare this part as we formed the shapes and dipped the top of the cake pop into the melted chocolate before placing the smarties.
When the kids played "paste the duck" I had some of the little ones crying because they didn't get it in the correct spot.  However, when each child got a pack of crayons, stickers and a package of fun activities to do and take home they forgot about this :)
We had a fabulous animal themed LEGO party, while listening to the DUPLO jams.

Quilled card

Quilling is so much fun and we can make lots of creative things.  I made this card to give as a birthday card.

I used the tools and paper from here.

To make this flower, I first made...
8 teardrop shaped purple shapes
1 orange tight circle
1 eye shape with green for the leaf 
and quilled half the paper to a loose circle for the stem 

Positioned it, where I wanted then lightly glued and placed it on the card.
