Start Your Engines Racing Cars Party Ideas

Little boys love cars. They are only too happy to tell you all about Roary the Racing Car and Lightening McQueen and his buddy Mater (as in “Tow Mater”). When my brother James was four years old he would go everywhere with a collection of matchbox cars stuffed in his pants pockets – so many that he could not walk or sit down properly. In his little hands he would hold the two favourite cars for that day. Our cousin Brendan had an even bigger car collection and when they were together all you could hear were two four year old boys making car sounds as they raced their best cars around the floor of the bedroom. It must be something that is ingrained in boys – the attraction to wheels, engines and loud revs. The faster they go, the cooler it is and Disney Pixar got it when they made the movie Cars and Cars 2. Even I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised how cool Cars was when we saw it at the movies (we had no kids at that stage).   more »

Cooking Birthday Party Ideas

So you have a party to plan and host for a soon to be seven year old and are wondering what you can do to keep the kids fed, happy and entertained? I have an idea that will require a bit of prep work, but totally worth it in the end. Inspired by cooking shows that are on at the moment – My Kitchen Rules on Channel 7 and Master Chef on the Lifestyle Food channels, why not host a birthday party where the kids can help prepare the party menu? Like I said, prep work will be required in doing most of the cutting, and plating up the range of ingredients. You could make the whole menu one for the kids to cook, or select one or two things for them to whip up.   more »

Weird Science Party Ideas

When it comes to planning kids parties, some of the best ideas come from movies. Take the film Flubber for example. A story about a scientist who creates this incredible green goop that bounces about and sets off a wild goose chase. What a great idea for a ten year olds birthday party? A science theme party where instead of playing pin the tail on the donkey or pass the parcel, they can make their own experiments and learn weird and wonderful things. I’m talking about bubbling volcanos, make your own flubber, jumping coins and kid-friendly lava lamps. The kids will love to sit and try their hand at being mad scientists and the looks on their faces when they make something jump, bubble, burp and stretch will be priceless. A quick search on line can bring up plenty of easy, kid safe science experiments that can be made from items in your own home.   more »

Hello Kitty Party Ideas

So the starlets love her and she is often seen adorning their clothes and accessories. Mariah Carey has her rider (performance demands) set out in that her room must be decorated entirely with her and has an admirable collection of all her products. Who am I writing about? Well she is a little white kitten who is known as Hello Kitty! Next to the rich and famous, Hello Kitty is also loved by little girls the world over. My daughter is a Hello Kitty fan and has a little collection of Kitty dolls and pictures.   more »

The Wiggles Themed Party Ideas

Children can be so finicky. What they like today, they won’t have anything to do with it tomorrow. One thing that I think all parents can agree on is the staying power of The Wiggles. I remember when they first started twenty years ago. I was 10 years old and my baby brother was infatuated with this new children’s show on the ABC. Four men in coloured skivvies danced about with a dinosaur that ate roses, a cheeky dog that barked a lot and a feather sword wielding pirate who would stumble and bumble his way around the set. Kids were hooked and parents were ever so grateful to have a group who not only kept the children happy, but their music was actually fun to listen too. I remember with Chris, the whole family would be up and dancing to Hot Potato and Dorothy the Dinosaur.   more »

Ladybird Party Ideas

The first birthday is a pretty big deal. Over 12 months you have watched your little one grow from little snuggly baby to a chunky, snuggly toddler who is now talking, walking and sending you grey before your time. You want to throw a birthday party for them, invite their little friends and their parents and let the kids have a good time. Obviously at the age of 1, they are settling into solids, can socialise to a point with other children but not actually play the way older kids do. I believe at this age it is called parallel play. But don’t let that put you off from having a party for you little treasure. First birthday parties are so much fun to organise!   more »

Jungle Party Ideas

Is that jungle drums I can hear? Some days when Tilly and Mish are in a mood I can’t help but think I have stumbled upon a jungle with roaring lions, stampeding elephants and cheeky monkeys. There is never a dull moment when you have children, as you run around after your little animals, leaping through the jungle, catching your monkey mid leap, your elephant mid stomp and lion mid roar. A jungle theme party for a first birthday is perfect for your wild one. Indoors or outdoors, you can make it fun, wild and noisy. Stick with jungle colours of green, yellow and brown along with Pink Frosting’s range of Jungle Party and Cheeky Monkey decorations.   more »

My Sweet 16

To quote an LOL Cat “What has been seen, cannot be unseen”. I have been watching the MTV show My Super Sweet 16 and Sweet 16 World Class and my eyes are as big as dinner plates. I had no idea your 16th was such a big deal. The young and more money than sense stamp their pedicured feet and pout their way through the planning of the ultimate 16th birthday party to rival the last 16th birthday party.   more »

5th Birthday Party Ideas

Anyway, the school term is well under way and for those of us experiencing the first time school hours gig, a whole new development is occurring. Mum’s are RSVP’ing to the influx of party invites, the calendar is being marked, schedules shuffled and toy catalogues collected. This afternoon it was my turn. As my daughter approached me after her teacher dismissed her at the hall, she held tightly in her little hands a large envelope and on her face, a big smile.   more »

The Family Easter Party

We try not to make it all about the chocolate by adding in a gift like a story book. The day is then spent together enjoying treats and reading books. But this year we want to organise a little Family Easter Party with their Aunty, Uncle and cousins. Setting it outdoors, making use of our back patio and grassy backyard we will have Easter decorations in bright, fun colours...   more »

Ideas for Hosting a Modern & Personalised Christening

A christening is a wonderful celebration as your child or children are welcomed into the church. It is important for the parents, God-parents and it is the children’s day. Typically a christening is organised whilst the child is still an infant, they are dressed in a beautiful white christening gown and the whole ceremony (in a church) is very formal, set in tradition   more »

Ideas for Nostalgic Kids Parties

Do you find yourself longing for the simple life of yesteryear? When children ran about and played pre-computer games instead of hiding out behind a DS or console? My five year old daughter and two year old son love Angry Birds, they were introduced to the game by one of their uncles and now if they can get their hands on Dad’s iPhone they will set up and play the game (I don’t even know how to work an iPhone!)   more »
