Happy Birthdays
by Dionna Sanchez

Your child's birthday is coming up again. It gets harder and harder to come up with new and fresh ideas.

Here are a variety of fun and unique ideas that hopefully can put the fun back into your birthday party planning.

*Have a football party for boys. Let them watch the game together with pizza, chips and pop. Just like the adults!

*Have the kids decorate the cake for a change.

*For older girls - have them decorate old jeans. They can put on school colors and draw mascots and wear them all to the basketball game.

*Have a backyard campout. You can either do it in sleeping bags on the back lawn under the stars or in tents. (You may want to have parental supervision all night long if the kids are younger).

*Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes - Pour cake mix into a cone and bake for 30 min.

*A hand party for younger children. Have a tablecloth decorated with handprints. Use finger foods and have goodie bags with play dough and finger puppets.

*Girls will love having a Beauty Parlor Party. Get a few moms to help out and have stations. They can get their fingernails and toenails painted, their hair curled or French braided, simple makeup or glitter applied and a dash of perfume. They can even drink sparkling cider out of plastic goblets while they wait their turns!

Make sure to take pictures...
