    Toddler Fun: Pom Pom Bath

    It's time for another Toddler approved activity! ;)
     
    If your house is anything like mine ... sometimes there are melt downs days.
    Days where the ONLY thing that keeps you sane and your kids alive --
    IS A BATH!!
    {yup, even it's 1:00 in the afternoon!}
     
    But this ain't your grandma's bath ...
    this is WAY more fun!
    This involves Pom Pom's - some with sparkles! ;) 
    {these were just ones we had in our craft closet but you can buy a big bag at the Dollar Store}
     
    I just dumped them all in the bath ...
     the boys were SO excited!!
     Wild Man immediately started collecting them in his cup ...
    and then lining them up.
     We talked about patterns, colors and sizes.
     
    Then they started throwing them! ;)
    and then Wild Man started putting them in his "boat" (aka muffin pan) to save them.
     
    We also added bubbles and had a "scavenger hunt" ...
     
    The boys seriously LOVED this activity --
    {just FYI - Wild Man is three and Little H is 18 months old}
    and the best part is that the pom pom balls dry out -
    so you can re-use them for next time! ;)
    We've played with them every night this week!
     
    So what's your favorite bath time activity?
     
    Have you tried DIY Bathtub Paint?
    Here's an old post I did about that ...

    Celebrate it: Choo Choo! Train Party!

    Wild Man just turned three ---
    which makes me so SO sad! :(
    He is growing up SO fast!
     
    We had his party at the local OKC Railway Museum ....
    
    and it was the PERFECT "Boy" party! 
    Seriously, it was an awesome location!
     
    We rented out the "Party Caboose" ...
    The caboose itself was pretty awesome, so the decorations were very simple -- a red polka dot table cloth (4 yds of Fabric from HL using 40% coupon), chalkcloth fabric placemats with a piece of chalk-- and a few pennant banners hanging from the ceiling! ;)
    I also ran some wooden train tracks down the center of the table ...
    which served as both decoration and entertainment...
     and that was it ... seriously simple!
     
    Upon arrival, each kid received a conductor's hat, a train whistle and a red bandana.
    (ordered from Amazon via Oriental Trading)
    The little trains were .29 at HL and I just painted them with chalkboard paint!
     
    Then there was the Paint-A-Train station ...
    I ordered the trains from here ...
    The kids loved painting them and then they got to take them home! :)
     
    Then there was the food table ...
    There were Turkey and Cheese sandwiches cut out like little trains ...
    Railroad Fruit Kabobs ...
    and adorable Chevron Fry containers filled with Veggie Straws ...
    There was also hummus, veggies, spinach-artichoke dip, pita chips & chicken salad croissants!
     
    I found this little train at the thrift store for .49!
     The lunch boxes were ugly Spider Man ones I spray painted red!
     
    Oh and then there was cake!
    it was DELICIOUS! {and super cute!} :)
     Wild Man loved blowing out the candle! :)
     
     But THIS was MY favorite part ...
     A Vintage suitcase cooler!
    I found this suitcase at the thrift store for $5 ... I just put a garbage bag in the bottom, some ice and the drinks! I just LOVED how it turned out!
    Oh and that banner? It's leftover from little H's first birthday!
     
    All of the party printables (including the invites!) came from Party Popper Studio!
    They were SO wonderful to work with and seriously?
    Trains + Chevron = so perfect!
    The water bottles had coordinating labels --
    as did the cupcake toppers ...
     the mini ice creams ...
    and the Favor Bags! :)
     {which included a wooden train and Thomas Fruit Snack!}
    {so make sure you check out Party Poppers for your next party, the prices are awesome!}
     
    
    But the BEST part of the party was NOT the decorations ... not even close!
    It was the trains!
    
    The running, the exploring, the climbing, the pretending.
    It was exactly what I had in mind!
    Boys just being Boys...
     on a perfectly beautiful February day!

    Where was the coolest place you've had a party?
