inspiration to the birthdayparty…:)
Hawaiimuffins….(decorated as The Cookie Monster)
4 eggs, beaten.
4 cups of flour.
1 ½ cups of crushed pineapple, drained.
1 ½ cups of skim milk.
½ cup of sugar.
½ cup of melted butter.
2 tablespoons of baking powder.
1 teaspoon of salt.
Sift together the dry ingredients.
Add the beaten eggs, milk and melted butter; then stir until smooth.
Add the crushed pineapple and mix thoroughly.
Spoon into greased three inch muffin pans, filling three quarters full.
Bake at 425°F (220°C) for 20 minutes or until done.
Simple Arrival Activities, such as making and decorating name tags, gift bags, or party hats, are a good way for children to transition into the party. Provide plain name tags, favor bags, or party hats and a supply of markers, stickers and ribbons.
Group activities can be as high energy as an obstacle course or as low key as a game of 20 questions, or for younger children listening to a story.
Arts & Crafts projects are fun, quiet activities that provide a nice balance for more active party games. Completed Arts & Crafts projects can also serve as party favors. Arts & Crafts should be relatively easy for the children to do, so they don’t require a lot of adult leadership and aren’t frustrating for the children.I try to avoid crafts that require lots of glue (messy and frustrating waiting for glue to dry) and I provide washable paints and markers to avoid staining skin or clothes.Beads and cord for necklaces or key chains, modeling clay, and pipe cleaner “sculpting” are popular arts & crafts project that most children are familiar with.If you child’s birthday is before a holiday, consider a craft related to the holiday.
