Drive-In Movie

Drive-In Movie

Grab a projector, lots of decorated cardboard boxes and your tot’s favorite movie for this uber special outdoors party. A throwback to the drive-in movie theatre days, this Curious George party was a huge box-office hit for the kids. They loved sitting in their own car, which also had easy access to snacks, during the whole show. Click here to see how The Party Wagon put this party together.

Painting Party
 

Painting Party

Throw up king-sized bedsheets in your garage wall and let your kids go to town! The end result could become something like a mural. Plus, at the end of the day, it makes a great group photo background. Check out more pictures of this party over at Kati’s blog Kataydee. There you’ll also see how this quick thinking mom got paint samples from Lowe’s and turned them into a colorful banner.

May Pole Party
 

May Pole Party 

Although this festival usually occurs on the first of May, we think it’s a spring tradition that can happen as long as the sun is out (and the weather permits). Look at all the colors and smiles on these kids’ faces! We’re sure friends and family look forward to dancing and weaving ribbons around the maypole every year. Visit Sacha’s blog for more pictures of this annual celebration.

Farm Animal Party
 

Farm Animal Party

New life is one of the first signs of spring, and this two year old sure figured that out at his farm animal birthday party in SoCal. Right under the warm sun, kids got to play outdoors, ride ponies, feed gerbils and pet goats. Momtographer Blair snapped some wonderful shots of this party — check them out here.
