Recently we helped facilitate a Western Themed School Mixer. The idea was to combine classes from a local all-boys and all-girls school. This would give the families of the 2020 graduates a chance to mingle and get to know one another. There was a mechanical bull, laser tag shoot out at the OK Corral, a western-themed crafting corner, and family photos in the “poke”.
One of the big hits of the day was our “Happy Trails” trail mix bar.
In the U.S, today is Take Our Daughter and Sons to Work Day. This amazing event, for children 8-18, is meant to "encourage girls and boys across the country to dream without gender limitations and to think imaginatively about their family, work and community lives". For my staff and me this is what we have come to refer to as "Halloween in April". It has become the single busiest day of the year for children's events.
I’m planning a 60th Birthday party for an long-time client. In doing so, I’ve been going through all his old photo albums. While going through these photos, I was taken back to a time when birthday parties were simply a gathering of friends sitting around eating cake. It was a big deal if there were balloons and party hats.
The other day my husband Scott sent me an article about a little girl who wanted a Poop Emoji party!
We love sand art at Sophie's World! It's one of those crafts that pretty much any kid of any age can do by themselves. With the variety of bottles and shaped holders in the market now, there is definitely bound to be something to suit even the pickiest of tweens or teens. When we've get a call for a big crafting table with say 1000 crafters, sand is often a go-to offering. The only drawback? How to keep the sand from mixing once the creation is done?
