Art Party

I HAD to share this party from one charming blog. Although it was an eco friendly artists birthday party, Brittany's ideas would be perfect for a little ones back to school party too. I am so lovin' the easels & the recycled crayon letters. Stop by and visit-her ideas and photographs are simply wonderful.

Kids, Play With Your Food!

A few of you commented on how much you liked the bento boxes I posted yesterday! I started thinking, what can put in bento boxes a little more fun for the kids? And then I discovered a bento box contest from Weird Asian News-I had no idea anything like this exisited.

For the younger ones, I found these....

Out to lunch

One of the ideas I had for the Back to School Bash was to have the kids decorate their own lunch boxes & to take them home as favor boxes. (I couldn't get them delivered on time so we will definitely do that next year) When I was searching for lunch boxes, I found these fun alternatives that you might want to send with your little one to school. these cute critters double as a lunch box and place mat from

cool compartments from letterbox
