Blackberry #1’s Indoor Playground Birthday Party

On November 13th Blackberry #1 turned 6. Each year he has a party for his little friends. Untill this year it was always in our flat. But this year after reading a great post at kids”r”simple : http://kidsrsimple.com/2013/11/07/having-fun-party-at-fungiggles-giveaway/

I decided to host Blackberry #1’s birthday at an indoor playground. It has alot of pros: no cleaning the flat before or after the party, no dish washing. nothing gets broken, and more room for the kids to run.

The only cons is the money, it is kind of expensive. But I found an indoor playground pretty close to our flat, that is not that big, but this way you get to rent out the whole thing for 3 hours, no strangers are allowed during the party. It turned out I knew the owner so I even got a discount. The price includes 15 kids for 3 hours, face painting, games, a cake! and photographing!

The party was great, 15 kids came (12 boys, 3 girls).

Have you ever held or been to a party at an indoor playground? How was it?

Halloween crafts afternoon

On Friday there was a Halloween crafts afternoon at Blackberry #1’s pre-school.

There was lots to do. Home made play dough, vegetables and fruits and nuts to make animals, and they had face painting so this way anybody could get a “costume”.

Here is what Blackberry #1 made:

Play dough pumpkins and angry birds:)
