Kids Craft/Party Favor. Learning Games. Decorating Fun!

I've been busy....

SEVERAL of my posts will be Pirate-esque until

March 7, 2010 is behind us. ha ha.


My little stinker's B-day party is around the corner and EVERYTHING I look at Screams:


It is completely exhausting:) ha ha.


EVEN my old moving boxes...the ones taking over the wall in my garage...proved useful last night!

Jarom...I would like to point at that this is proof...I can create something without spending $$$ lose:)

After my trip to hobby lobby yesterday I was pulling in the garage and noticed the ever growing "I'm too big to fit in your garbage can...but I'm most definitely GARBAGE" Pile...and I had this idea!


I was going to make Pirate swords:) go along with the mini treasure chests, eye patches, hooks, earrings, tattoos, spider pops and bag full of pinata candy that each child will get for helping us celebrate the big #3!....


I flattened out a single box and made Jarom draw (for some odd reason I am totally incapable of drawing even the most basic of shapes) a sword! I used it to template LOTS and LOTS.


Jaxson was really enjoying it and I thought it was super fun to have him get involved! All of these projects are making him so excited for his Party and I love that it will be memorable for him! Afterall, that's the only reason I do it!

The kids will get a kick out of it...especially the little BOYS...and a sword fight will most likely follow. Jax and I tested them out last night. They were a definitely a hit!

Oh how simple it is to please a toddler!

I'm thinking these will be one of the fun things they find hidden in the Treasure Chest.

I've written the cutest little Treasure Hunt ever...and I will be posting the link to the cutest pirate-ee clue cards for all of you!

***This party idea is so cute because it can easily be modified for any/all ages!***

  1. Super cute! Jaxsons party sounds like it's going to be a blast. I love his room! Want to help me decorate Kenny's? hehe. His is still purple from the previous owner of our house, we are having a hard time getting the lovely grandma wallpaper off of his wall.

  2. how did i not know about this "craft" blog you had before?:) i love his room! it is awesome! great job mommy! i love the rugby stipe all the way around the room and the balls and sports stuff and cars... a little boys dream, really. totally cool. little boys are the bomb! i am so glad my first child was a boy. i always wanted it that way.

  3. Hi, I was looking at one of my very favorite sites (Design Dazzle) and found your tutorial for the swords. Anyway, it caught me off guard because the font you used is my hand writing!!
    I won a contest on Sweet Shoppe Designs and Darcy Baldwin published my font as Angel Baby (see my post on March 7th 2009). It was so fun to see that someone is really using it.

    Then, I had to know more, so I checked out your other blogs. You are darling.

    I went to leave a comment and saw that Allegra had left one on you blog as well. Crazy, because I love her blog too. (She went to school with my sister)

    Anyway, I hope you don’t think I am creepy, but I do love making new blog friends. Feel free to check us out at
