Due to Sophie's birthday being in the middle of the week this year we decided to have friends party today.
The food was discussed and purchased, games thought of and the house decorated (including some bunting on the outside of the house!!)
Our first job was to create a little work of art using felt tip pens. Could have used the paint which came with the little pictures, but I did not want any accidents with clothes, floor etc.
These a little canvases which I found in The Range. Sophie has used these on several occasions and she thought that here friends would also enjoy colouring them.
Sorry about the picture, but blogger again has other ideas. Fun pictures though.
We also tried a pinatas ( I think that is spelt right) took a time to open and due to not instructions and thinking there was something inside already, it fell apart and we discovered that it was full of paper!! We have never bought one of these before and we did shake it and as it was so heavy we thought some sweets were already in there. So a "Doh" moment for mummy and daddy and we felt awful about it. In the scheme of things recently perhaps we should not worry about it but it was our mistake and we felt awful. So a bag of maltesers was produced and we tried to save the moment. Sophie did say about trying it again another time. Our new take on pass the parcel by having a lucky dip proved to be ok by having a large bin bag filled with 6 presents and 6 "duds" and each person took it in turns to dip until everyone found something. One person pulled out two and tried to keep two but there you go. Basically said put one back.................
