It has seemed to end all the fun we ever had before and will ever have in the unforeseen future...or will it?
When it comes to bdays, my family has FUN! I mean I do the most and party all day long. It does not matter if my kids are 1 or 101, I will be the mama that says "Happy Birthday my love! How are we turning up TUDAY?!"
Once upon a time, when the world was lovely and beautiful, AND FUN... every birthday was filled with local experiences. We run the town, try new desserts, splash in water parks, experience all the things as a whole big family.
I am known as the mama doing the most with a whole lotta kids for a reason. Because THIS is what I do. So to my dismay, or more so to spark my love for a challenge, I thought of more creative ideas to celebrate that were safe and secure from Corona. Let's get into them!
1. Search the Web
There are so many ideas on the web, Pinterest to be exact, that spark creativity and help you plan a bomb ahh bday for your kiddos. I scrolled and saw the cutest idea for a spa party for my baby girl who turned 5! I was able to invite her sister/friend/cousin (y'all know how our friends become family) and they had such a fun time being "grown".
Rose petals in soapy water.
Slushees in glass cups.
It was so extra and fun. It was inexpensive and perfect!
2. Get an Air BNB or Hotel
What's fun about an Air BNB or hotel room is that YOU'RE NOT HOME. We have been home for months. Just to be in someone else's home is just HEAVEN. We went to an Air BNB for my 6 year old's bday and it was too fun! The kids were so excited and wanted to move in! We ordered food in, had a movie night, enjoyed some cupcakes and called it a day! Super fun. Super easy. Affordable. A whole blast!
Get out the house y'all!
3. Join Nature
Nature is so very relaxing. It is the ying to my yang and I KNOW you feel the same way. (Even if you don't like bugs LOL) The calmness that nature has no matter what is happening in the world is priceless. Nature is UNBOTHERED. That unbothered energy is what flows from it to us. It is inevitable. We went to the lake for my 4 year old baby boy's bday and he enjoyed just jumping around and playing in the lake. Him and his siblings thought it was a great time. A wonderful happy, chill time.
We went to get slushees (Do y'all love slushees as much as we do?) and enjoyed them and nature.
4. Have Fun and Don't Stress
The kids will enjoy anything that you plan for them as long as YOU are having FUN. They want to have fun and most likely, no matter the age, are not sure of all the ways to have fun. So show them. Relax. Turn the music up loud, dance. Bake some cupcakes, eat 'em. Turn on a good movie, laugh.
Although these are weird and crazy times, there is always room for positivity, high vibrations and most importantly LOVE.
This might be the lesson through it all...no matter the circumstances around you, you control the outcome.
Have fun partying!
Until next time,
