A year ago today, we had a purple birthday party.
The theme request wasn't too surprising, since my youngest's favorite color is purple. This year though, I was all geared up for princesses, a tea party, or even Fancy Nancy. I was a little surprised when she requested a yellow birthday, instead. I even tried to get her to elaborate - yellow flowers? yellow princesses? maybe, yellow bugs? But she stuck to her guns - just yellow.
So, it's a yellow cake, yellow pinata (click here, to see how to make one), filled with yellow candy, accompanying yellow decoration. To be followed by...
- yellow play dough fun (click here, for the recipe).
- yellow balloon bop - where the balloons can't touch the floor
- yellow freeze dance - where the children dance, while the music plays (something like The Beetle's Yellow Submarine song), and then freeze as the yellow object called out, when the music is stopped (sunflower, banana, shooting star, etc.)
- and blowing bubbles in a pan - which is not yellow, but is a favorite of the birthday girl.
And, given that the gray, cold, rainy weather has returned today, I really couldn't think of a better theme, anyway.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
