• Gabby's Dollhouse Birthday Party

    Easy DIY Birthday Party

    We celebrated my girl’s birthday while camping last weekend and it was low-key, while still being everything she wanted! Kid’s birthday parties can get expensive really fast – especially if your child requests a character theme – but they absolutely don’t HAVE to be expensive. I was able to give her a Gabby’s Dollhouse Birthday Party using supplies from the Dollar Tree and craft stores, without breaking the bank.

  • Friday Freebie – Summer Birthday

    Happy Friday! I was searching for a freebie to share and when I stumbled on this one it struck a nerve.  I love this Summer Birthday form from Khrys Greco because I was the kid with a summer birthday.  I think one year I was allowed to bring in a birthday treat on the last day of school, other than that one year I never got to celebrate my birthday at school.  I think that this is a fun way to let families know that celebrating a half birthday is an option.  Download your copy and have a great weekend!

In our classroom we had two birthdays to celebrate right after Winter break, and ever since our class has been consumer with every thing birthdays. Even the children who don’t have a birthday for 6 more months are excitedly planning their own parties (and I do apologize to their parents)! It seemed only natural that we make this a tangible part of our classroom, so today we introduced birthday items into our dramatic play area. We included birthday plates, cups, and napkins, special ice cream bowls and an ice cream scoop, birthday candles, cupcake wrappers, gift…
