It is time to plan your dream wedding!!

Weddings are stressful by themselves why add the children to the stress. When you are making your guest list you start to realize that everyone you are inviting have children and your venue is not children friendly. What is a bride to do? Hire a wedding sitter. A wedding sitter most important job is to keep the children entertain and not under the tables.

Children can be so cute at weddings and will steal the scene. However if things are not planned right, they will make a disaster. That is where Tootles Tea Parties come in. It is your day to relax and to know that everyone that is a guest at your wedding is well taken care of.IMG_8512

My days are never boring with 2 kiddos. I only wish there were a few more hours in every day. I think this during my normal routine, nothing extra going on.  The kids are always on the go and ready for their next big adventure. Play dates, hikes, learning time and the list goes on and on.

Next thing you know it is Birthday party time. You know, that one day out of your kiddos’ year that is 100% about them. It’s your time to shine and put on the biggest and best party of their life. My stress comes months before the actual date of their Birthday. I get so much anxiety over every detail. I just want it to be perfect.  I want it to be that Birthday party that people look back on and think “it was awesome”.

We go to so many Birthday Parties all year long and I am always taking notes. How can I make this years’ party better? The problem with thinking this way is I am constantly stressing about it until that day arrives. As soon as the day passes I am onto the next Birthday party I have to plan. I hate having to focus on anything other than what my kids are enjoying at that moment.

One of my kiddos Birthday is in October and the other is in February. It feels so crazy that time of year. The events in that date range are Birthday Party, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and another Birthday Party. I feel so overwhelmed. Knowing that there is hope of anxiety relief is awesome. I know that every detail will be taken care of and I will be able to still enjoy all the little things with my kids up until that big Party day.  Tootles Tea Party will bring back the enjoyment that is supposed to be felt during a Party.  The details will be taken care of but without the stress. I look forward to the next Birthday Party now.

Reading through the quarterly SCOPE magazine, from the Orlando Science Center, I saw a piece on creating a tornado in a bottle.  This seemed like a fun activity to do with the kids, so I wanted to share it with you all!

Ingredients:

8 oz. jar with lid

Clear liquid dish soap

Water

Vinegar

Glitter

Glue (optional)

Food coloring (optional)

Directions:

Fill the jar 3/4 of the way with water and add food coloring, if desired.  Add one teaspoon of vinegar and a teaspoon of dish soap.  Add a pinch of glitter and attach the lid tightly to the jar.

Note: For added security, use glue inside the lid to keep children from opening the jar.

To learn more about tornados, you can visit the Orlando Science Center.

Cake Walk Carnival Game

Spending some time reminiscing about fun activities that I participated in as a child and wanted to share with all my favorite readers.  Did you ever attend an elementary school carnival/festival where you participated in a cake walk?

The activity goes like this:

Use construction paper to create circles and put a different number on each one.  Place the circles onto the floor in the shape of a circle.  In a bowl, write the numbers on small pieces of paper.  It’s time for the festivities!

Participants will walk in a circle around the numbers to music.  When the music stops, pull a number out of the bowl.  Whomever is standing on that number wins!  Usually the winner gets a cake, but you can switch it up to be something kid-friendly!

Do you think you’ll play this game at your next kids’ party or school festival? What other games do you love playing?
