Welcome to the Club

Getting New Moms Adjusted to Mommyhood One Step at a Time

Group Home

So, I finally decided to have my son's second birthday at a community center near my house. It is only costing me five bucks an hour and I dont have to worry about having all those people at my house :) Anyway, can you gals think of some low cost things we can do there? It is really huge. I am going to bring his little slide, his tunnel and his ball pit. There will be a lot of adults too. What have you done in the past? Any cute ideas for food even? I am ordering an ice cream cake...

Gone Fishing Game  

Kids who are 5 and 6 love this party game where they fish for prizes!  This game needs small prizes, fishing poles made from bamboo sticks, yarn, clothespins and something large that will hide an adult such as an appliance cardboard box, a hallway or doorway covered with a sheet or a tablecloth placed over a card table.   The adult hides inside the water without the children seeing them and then the kids cast their line.  When the line put in the "water" then the adult clips a wrapped candy or small toy to the clothespin.   The child then reels in their prize.  Kids are amazed at this game and want to play it over and over!

He is only two, so some games are a little hard for his age group.

I would always keep the food simple; pasta salad, wings, hot dogs, chips

Remember you want foods that both the kids and adults will enjoy and you don't want to have to worry about having to do a lot of cooking before the party.
