With three (soon to be four) children in our house, we are almost always preparing for and celebrating something. Even with our busy schedule, I give each child their own special party for their birthdays. They pick any theme they want (the younger children get some persuasion from me) and I start planning. They love the individual attention to have a day with their friends and spending the time focused on their favorite activity.
This past weekend we celebrated our oldest child’s 6th birthday. A couple of months ago he decided he really wanted it to be a Mario Brothers theme. As a Mario fan in my own childhood, I was excited to see what we could create.
With plenty of themed food, games, and a cake, he’s already trying to plan his 7th birthday party! Visit Raising Little Treasures to see more of our party!
In the past, we’ve had a Space Party
a party based on the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
and several others.
I love the individual attention it gives to each of our children, the fun and creativity that they get to watch and help as we prepare for their special day, and of course the joy they experience with all of their friends.
