It has been a whirlwind of a few weeks, but I think things should start slowing down soon. We had Wyatt’s big “Birthday Bash” today and had a great time catching up with family and friends. I think it is safe to say Wyatt had a fantastic time!
We had crushed Kit Kat Bars, Reeces Peanut Butter Cups, Mint Cookies, Oreos, and Graham Crackers. We also had M & M Mini’s, Mini Chocolate Chips, Sprinkles, Peanuts, Strawberry Coulis, and homemade Chocolate Syrup. I think that about covers it!
Then going with the “ice cream” theme we had Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes!
Of course a party isn’t complete without punch. I did one can of frozen fruit juice with three cans water, one 2-liter of Ginger Ale, and Raspberry Sherbert. I cut up lemons and limes into slices put in a muffin tin and covered with a little water to freeze for my ice. I found some very cool straws at Hobby Lobby my last visit and thought that the kids would get a kick out of them. They got to take them home too!
All the kids got to leave with favor bags. I found white paper craft bags at Hobby Lobby and painted them for something fun.
Then I included a Kool-Aid play-doh recipe with all the dry fixings…
…and a CD of Wyatt’s favorite tunes. I made the envelopes out of scrapbook paper.
I even made party hats for the kids using cereal boxes, scrapbook paper and Mod Podge, but I have to admit that effort may have been in vain. The kids weren’t all that interested in them.
It was a lot of fun to plan and I am very pleased with how it all turned out. I hope everyone had as good as time as we did! I can’t believe we have a four year old already, how time flies!
