It's Playtime: Party Time!

It can be difficult planning a birthday party.  From the type of cake to make (or purchase) to ways to entertain the children.  Instead of fretting about your child's next party, check out these fabuloso ideas discovered on last weeks It's Playtime!

Rather then a tired ol' sheet cake for your next party, try baking this yummy Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Box Cake created by Sun Scholars instead.  

 Don't forget the ice cream!  TinkerLab shared with us how Painting on Ice Cream can create edible works of art.  Why not turn this into a fun and creative party activity?  The kids will thank you!  

And what child can resist party games?  Especially when they involve water balloons!  Local Fun for Kids shared 5 Ideas for Water Balloon Games.  

 Themed parties don't always need to involve character plates and cups.  It can be about the dress and activities instead.  My Oatmeal Kisses shared some great ideas for a Princess Party.
