this fringe cutter in the mail last week, so I took some tissue paper I had on hand and used it to make a little garland for the table at the last minute. The cutter definitely made the project go much more quickly than scissors.
And I used my dad's board to do some chalk art. The pad on the back was filled with his own notes: a perfect fit for the party.

It was unusually chilly, so we finished off with presents and brownies with ice cream inside. It was hard for me to not put as much time into this party as I usually do, and prepping for it during the day had me second guessing myself often, but I found I was able to enjoy the actual party more. There was less to manage, and that allowed me time to do the experiments with the kids and just enjoy the celebration.
Do you find yourself multi-tasking during your kids parties?
