I have this awesome friend who has three little boys.
She just had the most amazing little party, to celebrate being a boy!
You know, I've been to countless girl-y tea party, dress-up, princess, etc parties. And I love all that, being a girly-girl myself, but I also love the down-and-dirty fun-in-the-mud all-that-is-boy stuff. And, being a mom of three boys myself, I can't believe I never thought of having a BOY party.
This was so neat. She had displays of legos, blocks, farm animals, and The Dangerous Book for Boys set up. The table was burlap, camouflaged place mats with matching plates, cups, etc. The boys ate fish (goldfish) and then mud cakes (chocolate iced cupcakes.)
They each got their very own real wood sword. Don't worry, the ends weren't sharp. Someone smart had thought to hammer them until they were dull. :-) And they each got a newspaper hat, paper airplane, compass, frog, dino stickers, and decoder set. So very neat!!
I made jello racecars to bring, but then forgot about them and they stayed in her fridge the whole time! Heh. That's me.
Ten little boys, and so much fun! They could swing, play, run, shout, do crazy stunts, get dirty, pee outside, if need be...and no one got in any trouble. They just got their energy out and played like boys should play! Oh, I love it!
