Craft for Gran!

To say that Miss Mimi has developed an obsession with a certain DK book, about how to plan your own party, might just be a bit of an understatement. Mim has excitedly been waiting for the 18th of January, for Gran’s birthday. Even counting down the sleeps!

This particular book has been a hot favourite for weeks now. Mimi has been scanning pages and making all kinds of fabulous plans and birthday craft for Gran. Is it because Gran said “After my birthday, then comes your birthday.”? Maybe she is trying to rush Gran’s to get to her’s? Whatever the reason, we now have more invitations, decorations and masks than this little house can handle.

“My First Party Activity Book” gives all kind of ideas for the planning of a party. From biscuit and cake recipes, to dips and hats and decorations. The invitations that you can see above is Miss Mimi’s favourite part. Christmas and Easter parties might see your child making the appropriate card to correlate with those times, but if your child is anything like mine they will want to make every card that the book gave an idea for! I helped my little lady cut out different shapes and off she went to work decorating them.

We have made masquerade masks and glittery spiders, all waiting eagerly for when Gran comes this Thursday. Apparently we also need to make snacks and a cake and decorate the house for Gran’s big surprise. Geez! I hope this much fuss is lavished over me next month for my birthday!

The only downfall to all this creativity is the mess my lounge room endures. Oh well, it’s all for the good of Gran’s Birthday Surprise! Not much of a surprise now though, considering Mum is the biggest fan of my blog….

  1. Hi! Thanks for your comment over at NurtureStore – great to meet you! I love it when children get a passion about something, and I think your masks are a great idea. I host a Play Academy idea swap on Fridays, and if you’d like to come and join in and share an idea with us you would be most welcome. Cathy šŸ™‚

  2. Lucky Gran! Hope she enjoys her birthday šŸ™‚

    It’s always so good to see them totally absorbed in something. It never lasts for too long (no more than 2-3 weeks at the most, I am sure! LOL), so enjoy the mess, and maybe have a few teddy parties along the way to help use up some of your part supplies šŸ™‚

  3. What a lovely birthday surprise. I love that this creative play is so much about giving to another person. Thanks for linking up to We Play this week x
