Dinosaur party for my little girl? Hell, yeah!
Kind of a last minute idea, kind of easy, and a lot of fun! Didn’t need much preparation, which was essential this time, since we just bought our new house (literally got the keys 2 days prior the party), and we are in the middle of moving.
Before my daughter’s birthday, I organized another event at her preschool. We made a Fairies and Elves party as a fundraising event, that needed much more prep work, but then it was a party to host a larger number of kids. With so much going on lately, I haven’t really baked anything for us, hence the lack of posts. And another reason for not baking is that my husband is gluten intolerant, and we just found out several weeks ago, so ever since then I haven’t really baked anything. I definitely need to try out gluten free baking soon, but first things first, we are moving! Yaaaay!
The older girls applied dinosaur tattoos on the little ones.
Another fun activity was to eat little donuts off a string without touching them with hands.
We also had frozen dinosaur eggs which I made by inserting little dinosaurs in water balloons, filled with water, then put them in the freezer. We then poured warm water over the eggs to discover the dinosaurs when the ice was gradually melting off.
After everyone went home late afternoon, my little 4 year old (who’s birthday was actually on the day of her party) stayed out and played on her own at the sand pit for a good 20-30 minutes. After all the excitement she needed some time alone to cool off, process everything and take it all in….Happy Birthday my sweet Darling!
10 years old!
It was my oldest daughter’s 9th birthday on Saturday, and we decided to celebrate it in STYLE of Taylor Swift. We went for Taylor’s famous RED lips and for her also famous “Not a lot going on at the moment” outfit from the clip 22. The girls (my girl and her two best friends) are not even half the age, but they’re sure feeling 22… 🙂
She dressed up and we made a few photos a weak before the party to make a suitable invitation for her friends.
It was fun putting together this little party, and it was great fun being around and watching them. My daughter has two very good friends, who couldn’t have more different personalities, yet they got along together so well during the day, and they certainly enjoyed every minute of it.
They first did a little dancing and singing, then they solved a puzzle. They had to put the words in order to get the correct song titles. After this we went out for lunch, but then got back to the house to attack the desert table.
After having some cake and sweets, the girls decorated white canvas trainers with fabric markers. Naturally, they got to keep the trainers as a party favour along with a Taylor Swift CD and a bright red lipstick each. They were thrilled!
My daughter wanted a chocolate cake with a little puppy -which is totally non-Taylor Swift, but hey, that’s what she asked for, and that’s what she got. So, here is my very first marzipan puppy.
Here’s my Valentines Day treat for the family, although we don’t care much about Valentines Day at all. Anyways, as red is one of my favourite colours I was happy to make something to suit this day.
Very basic. Very easy.
Made them from left over cupcakes taken out from the freezer. As it is Chinese New Year. I thought these biscuits would suit the occasion perfectly.
