I can’t believe that the year has already passed…and time for summer. I am so looking forward to it! Can’t wait to make my yearly trip to the beach! We are busy like bees in class wrapping up our end-of-year activities, testing and, yup, report cards. Ugh…but it has to be done. I’m so proud of my kiddies.
Now I’m thinking of summer…and helping my 8 y.o. son begin his with his “Splish Splash Birthday Bash” Pool Party. I found some really neat ideas on a wonderful website “Pinterest”. I will definitely share here. To the left is an example of what I’m going to try this year. But instead, as a thank you card which my son will color the water and sign. He probably won’t be too excited about that but little sister can help too. I will incorporate the whole pool party with an “Angry Birds” theme. So….”Angry Bird” pool party”?! It can happen, you’ll see. Stay tuned for pictures.
Another neat idea I found is a Jello Aquarium. There is an image to the right. I will prepare this the night before with a few little modifications of my own. I just hope it works. From what I’ve read from the one who prepared it on the webiste, they were a real hit at her party. It is blue jello in a small clear cup with Swedish fish candy and whip cream! Adoreable! Yes…along with my Angry Birds. My son decided he wanted Angry Birds after I had spent many nights thinking, planning and re-thinking what to do for his “bash”. So I’ll mix it in. He is real excited, and I am too. This is…the day before Mother’s Day. Yup, I know what you’re thinking. But I WILL…get my Mother’s Day. 🙂 It’s gonna happen. We are expecting a large group, just hope we don’t get “rained out”! 😮
I’ll let you know.
