Lego Party Food

  Here is the food! Well most of it at least. For food for kid parties I try to keep it as simple as possible and kid friendly because well, this was for 4 and 5 year olds. I also do let my kids pick the food for the most part and they usually pick crowd pleasers. On the menu Read More…

Lego Party: Decorations

Easy Army Camo Cupcakes Recipe

I made these for my son’s half birthday last year. He’s a summer birthday so he gets to celebrate his half birthday at school. He wanted an army theme so I made these up and all the kids loved them.

Superhero Party – Goodies/Treats

Superhero Party

The very much awaited superhero party was almost a month ago and I’ve only just finished editing all the pics.

Train Party Games and Activities

(This post may contain affiliate links, but don’t worry – they won’t bite.)
