I love learning about different cultures & their holiday traditions. Parents magazine featured an article how families from around the world celebrate the new year with their good luck traditions. Armenia Mothers make a special bread for their family, kneading luck and good wishes into the dough before it is baked. Bahamas People spend months creating elaborate costumes for the Junkanoo parade. The strangest and most beautiful costumes win prizes. Bolivia Families hang little homemade straw…
Birthday kid gets a ballon avalanche when he/she opens the door in the AM. Pinned this before but this one uses crepe paper to hold the balloons instead of a sheet of plastic, which is way better! Cuz then they get to rip through the paper!
Best Kids’ Parties: Camping Party
Name: Ava, 7Location: Charlotte, NC When my daughter Ava told me she wanted a camping themed party, I was super excited!
