Preparing for a Birthday Party

When it comes to parties and takes preparation. This week we have been preparing. It is my three children’s birthdays next week (yes, all on the same day, well, all bar about 15 mins for one twin), so preparation has been required.

Baking with eggs

It can be difficult finding a birthday party that suits three children, both boy and girls who are two years apart in age, but after reviewing the fantastic trampoline park in Swindon a while ago, they decided they’d like a trampoline party. We found another park a little nearer us and booked it.

However, it has taken up so much of our time. The booking system is terrible, we have spent many hours typing in friends email addresses and dates of birth, for every party goer, for it to disappear off the system! This process was repeated several times over. Fingers crossed it is now finally sorted.

Apart from the party, I always make my children a novelty cake. This year they have really gone to town with what they’d like. BB has chosen a Millennium Falcon cake and Pinky and Boo want a minion cake. I did manage to persuade Pinky and Boo to share their cake, I really don’t think I can manage three that complicated! Hence, these cakes have taken a lot of thought and preparation.

I am keeping my fingers crossed they work out OK and I manage to get them done in time.

It is world book day for us, Friday, so we have been preparing costumes. BB is being the super hero from ‘My brother is a superhero‘ by David Solomons. I am currently reading this with him, so he’s going to wear his superhero cape I made for him last Christmas.

Boo is being Snow White, we already have that costume, which my mum made several years ago for my cousin. Pinky wanted to be a pirate from ‘Pirates don’t play cricket‘ by Iain O’Brien and Rowan Gibson, she loves that book and we already have pirate costumes, so…great choice!

As it is world book day I also wrote an article on ‘books to encourage toddlers to read‘. I enjoyed remembering all the wonderful books my children used to love and how my son would bring us book after book to read, before he could even walk! That was a lovely time.

March is such a busy month in the Let kids be kids house, so preparation is key!
