A Real Grass Place Card Display Idea

A Real Grass Place Card Display Idea

This afternoon, as we were talking to our 85 year old grandmother about the logistics of keeping a small dog in her urban apartment, we had an aha moment. When asked how she was planning to potty train her new dog and deal with after dark “walks”, she said she had heard of attractive, affordable environmentally-friendly dog grass patches. This way her new pup could “go” whenever she wanted – day or night, rain or shine. Grandma was right, as usual. DoggieLawn actually delivers an indoor doggy potty right to her front door. Now that she has convinced us she can handle a tiny companion, she just has to convince one of the doggie adoption agencies to approve her application. Continue Reading →

Purim Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Sunset March 09, 2020 – Sunset March 10, 2020

The holiday of Purim celebrates the victory of the Jewish people over the evil Haman. On the day preceding Purim there is a fast called “The Fast Of Esther”. On Purim itself, the Megillah (Book Of Esther) is read twice, once at night and once during the day. Jews celebrate Purim by giving charity, sending Shalach Manot (gifts of prepared food) and holding a festive meal.

We love this oldie but goodie via 2011! The Maccabeats – Purim Song (Thank you Kosher on a Budget for sparking this memory!)

Celebrating Purim – An overview

The holiday of Purim is celebrated on the 14th of Adar (February-March). It commemorates the foiling of a plot by a Persian minister (Haman) to kill all the Jews in Persia. Purim is observed by Jews around the world. Characterized by feasting and merriment, Purim is typically celebrated in the company of family and friends in a synagogue. Continue Reading →

Presidents Day Printable Game

A few years back,  I spoke to Deanne over at Printable Games A to Z  about the dearth of printable Presidents Day printable games. (we are so missing her site!) Here is what she suggests:

Personalize  a Customizable Printable Bingo Card  with the names of different presidents:

1. George Washington 2. John Adams 3. Thomas Jefferson 4. James Madison 5. James Monroe 6. John Quincy Adams 7. Andrew Jackson 8. Martin Van Buren 9. William Henry Harrison 10. John Tyler 11. James K. Polk 12. Zachary Taylor 13. Millard Fillmore 14. Franklin Pierce 15. James Buchanan 16. Abraham Lincoln 17. Andrew Johnson 18. Ulysses S. Grant 19. Rutherford B. Hayes 20. James Garfield 21. Chester A. Arthur 22. Grover Cleveland 23. Benjamin Harrison 24. Grover Cleveland 25. William McKinley 26. Theodore Roosevelt 27. William Howard Taft 28. Woodrow Wilson 29. Warren G. Harding 30. Calvin Coolidge 31. Herbert Hoover 32. Franklin D. Roosevelt 33. Harry S. Truman 34. Dwight D. Eisenhower 35. John F. Kennedy 36. Lyndon B. Johnson 37. Richard M. Nixon 38. Gerald R. Ford 39. James Carter 40. Ronald Reagan 41. George H. W. Bush 42. William J. Clinton 43. George W. Bush 44. Barack Obama 45. Donald Trump

We like the idea!  And if you are really into Presidential trivia, rather than calling out the Presidents' names you can give unique hints like “he was the 31st President” (Hoover) or “he was elected for two nonconsecutive terms.” (Cleveland)  Too bad none of the hints can yet refer to a “she”!

Start A New Valentine's Tradition – Play Valentine's Day Party Games With Your Coupled or Single Friends 

Lips, Valentine's Day Party Games

If you're in a relationship, the frustration of planning what to do with your special someone can become a tedious yearly endeavor. Inviting other couples to a Valentine's Day get-together can be a fun way to add something new to the holiday while still allowing for romantic time with your sweetheart. Valentine Bingo, Lefty's In Love, and Movie Love Quotes are fun games to play with a room full of people, so the more the merrier!  These games would also be perfect for classroom Valentine's Day parties and workplace break time fun!

If you're not in a relationship, spending V-Day alone often feels like rubbing salt in an open wound. That's why having your other friends who are also single over can make the reality of the day not seem quite so depressing.  Doing something different and having a Valentine's Day game night can be a fun new tradition to start.

Coco Birthday Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

If you and your family have not yet seen Disney Pixar's Coco, we highly recommend you head on over to Netflix or Amazon Prime Video! This is easily one of our all time favorite movies. Coco is an educational, adorable and heart-warming animated film about Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). If you and your children are a fan of the movie seriously consider using the movie to inspire your next birthday party. Not only will your party be visually brilliant, its beautiful meaningful message will set your party apart from the rest, in only good ways! (This is a great theme for classroom parties as well).
