Beach Bash in a Blizzard

Anyone else suffering from the winter blues? We know how you feel! January is usually a pretty dreary month; it's cold, snowy, and warm, summer weather seems just way too far away! Cure your winter woe with a beach bash (an indoor one, of course). Invite your favorite people, turn the thermostat up, and pretend it's summer!

Make your guests feel like they're in paradise the second they get in the door with a lei backdrop! Use lei strands, which can be found at most party stores and website, to easily create a stunning backdrop. Put out some fun summer props like sunglasses, beach balls, and more, as the lei strands make the perfect photo booth backdrop! Photo credit: Bambini Soiree.

This aloha party punch will have your party guests feeling "beachy keen" in no time! With only four ingredients, this non-alcoholic, tropical punch is sure to be a hit with guests of all ages. And, of course, no tropical drink is complete without a crazy straw, fruit garnish, and mini drink umbrella! Find the recipe from The Frugal Girls!

Painted pineapples make the cutest centerpieces! Use bright-colored paints that coordinate with your party colors for fun and easy party decor. Bonus, the pineapples double as awesome photo booth props AND can still be eaten afterward! Find the step-by-step instructions at Life, Love, and the Pursuit of Shoes!

Pin the tail on the donkey doesn't really work for a beach party, but pin the coconut on the palm tree sure does! While these types of games may seem like they're "just for kids," we can assure you that the results are equally hilarious with party guests of all ages! Check out the directions at Domestic Mess!

Stay tuned for more party ideas!

Surf's Up

The weather outside is frightful, but what better way to forget the cold for a day than by throwing a beach bash? Unless you're one of those lucky people who live in a tropical paradise, the partying will be confined to the indoors, but that doesn't mean you can't make the most of it!

Don't let your guests get crabby from hunger! These "crab" sandwiches are so festive and easy to make! Use croissant rolls to make a variety of sandwiches, like turkey and cheese, or peanut butter and jelly. Not only are these sandwiches adorable, but they'll satisfy even the pickiest of eaters! Find the instructions at Simply Creative Ways!

Now that your little beach-goers have had some lunch, they need dessert! These beach cupcakes can be made with your favorite cake mix and are easy to decorate! Using only a few ingredients, this cupcake design can easily be replicated by a decorating amateur! Find the step-by-step instructions at So Festive.

Our surf's up cupcake toppers are the perfect addition to your festive dessert. With a mix of sea blues, bright orange, and lime green, these toppers bring summer wherever they are, even during the winter!

Make sure you thank your party-goers as they leave the "beach." Put fun beach favors, such as sunglasses, beach balls, and bubbles, in a plastic beach bucket! How awesome is it that the bucket doubles as a favor and a functional container? Photo credit: Kara's Party Ideas.

These favor tags add a personalized touch to your party favors! Images vary and include blue sharks, orange and green surfboards, and blue and orange swim trunks!

Party Tips and Tricks

It's not until you start planning a party that you realize just how taxing and time consuming it can be! From the invitations and decor, to the activities and food, there are a lot of details that need to be accounted for We know you're busy enough as it is, so we thought we'd share a few of our favorite party hacks to make your life a little easier!

One of the worst parts of party preparation is blowing up a ton of balloons! It doesn't take long to start running out of breath! Did you know that you can easily blow up dozens of balloons in no time using vinegar and baking soda? Talk about a breath of fresh air! Check out Nature Hacks for the directions!

Is your child celebrating a birthday at school? Don't forget the treats! Bringing in cupcakes for your child's class is a fun way to celebrate, but transporting 20+ cupcakes is way easier said that done. Use clear plastic cups and cellophane for easy transportation and no mess! Find the instructions at Michelle Paige Blogs

Planning to serve ice cream at the party? Make life easier (and less messy) by scooping it ahead of time! Scoop the ice cream into a muffin tin lined with cupcake liners and freeze overnight. When it comes time to serve the cake, just remove the ice cream scoops from the liners! Find the directions and more ice cream hacks at Real Simple!

Sundae bars are fun, but putting all the toppings out can be messy! Use a muffin tin to put out tons of toppings all in one place! This hack works great for sundae toppings, but would also be great for burger or hotdog toppings, like ketchup, onions, and more! Photo credit to Two Peas & Their Pod!

Kick Cabin Fever to the Curb

"The weather outside is frightful." Is there a lyric that more accurately describes the winter weather? Winter break is right around the corner and, understandably, you may not be super eager to play with your kids outside in the cold and snow (we don't blame you)! But just because you're staying inside doesn't mean you can't enjoy the season!

This "snow dough" is easy to make and SNOW much fun to play with! It's super soft, naturally cold, and, we saved the best part for last, it doesn't require any cooking! Use beads and a variety of other fun embellishments to create snowmen! When your kids are done playing for the day, just store the dough in a Ziploc bag or air-tight container until next time. Find the instructions at Growing a Jeweled Rose!

This winter hat craft is the perfect indoor activity for kids and can be tailored to any age group. Use a variety of markers, crayons, colored pencils, stickers, and whatever else you can think of to decorate the hats! For younger kids, have an adult cut the hats out after the decoration process.

This fun mitten math snowflake counting activity is a great way to incorporate some math into winter break! Perfect for toddlers and preschoolers, this winter-themed counting game helps with number recognition and fine motor skills! It's easy to set up and will keep your little one busy and productive!

This snowflake painting project might be messy, but it sure is fun! Two activities combined into one, kids can first decorate their canvases with either coffee filter snowflakes or painter's tape!

Deck the (School) Halls

Winter break (and the holiday season) is almost here! Just a few more weeks until you get a much needed break from the school morning routine! This time of year is usually one of the busiest, and with all the holiday craziness, your child's winter/holiday school party may sneak up on you! Never fear, we have you covered with plenty of classroom party ideas.

On beverage duty? Grab some bottled water and stick one of our adorable winter-themed water bottle labels to each one! Featuring snowmen, snowflakes, and penguins, our self-stick water bottle labels take theme coordination to the next level!

These string cheese snowmen are festive and easy to make (no cooking involved)! Customize the snowmen with different colored hats and ribbons for an extra fun touch! Find directions at No Biggie

Another healthier snack option is these adorable frozen banana penguins! Made with chocolate, bananas, and M&M's, these tasty treats are (relatively) healthy and will be the talk of the party! These will melt pretty quickly, so be sure to transport them in a cooler. Find the instructions at Reading Confetti!

Who doesn't love rice krispie treats? These reindeer rice krispies are perfect for the holidays! Putting each rice krispie treat on a stick allows for easy transportation and easy eating! Find the recipe and decorating instructions from Thirty Handmade Days

Thanksgiving: A Day Full of Thankful Activities

How is it possible that Thanksgiving is only a week away? This year is flying by! Of course, one of the best parts of the holiday is sitting down to eat that delicious Thanksgiving dinner you've been dreaming about, but how do you spend the rest of the day? Keep the kids entertained (and out of the kitchen) with this fun, Thanksgiving-themed scavenger hunt! Find the full instructions and printables from The Taylor House!

Put a unique, personalized spin on the classic hand/footprint turkey crafts by putting a picture of your kid making a hilarious face on top of the turkey's head! While the process might be a little messy, the result will be hilarious and totally worth it! Continue the tradition and compare the turkeys from year to year! Find the supply list and directions at Crafty Morning!

These adorable candy corn turkey sugar cookies are super fun to make and even better to eat! Oven space is likely to be pretty limited on Thanksgiving Day, so you can make the sugar cookies the night before and just decorate them on Thanksgiving! Check out Wal-Mart for the full recipe!

As evidenced by the name of the holiday, Thanksgiving is a time to be appreciative and voice gratitude for the things you're thankful for. This "I am thankful for..." printable placemat lets your kids express what they're thankful for and can be used as a coloring page! Find the printable at the Kids Activities Blog!
