We love a good party here. Whether they’re birthday parties, summer parties, or just tea parties at lunchtime, it’s always fun to take a break from the day and have a fancy little celebration.
You can make just about any meal special with a fancy dress and a tea set. I like to take everyday snacks like raisins and sandwiches (cut into tiny bites) and put them on our special plates to dress things up. I even once threw an entire birthday party using only snacks and food I already had on-hand. It’s one of the ways we keep birthday party costs down, and no one seems to mind.
So when we had a chance to try out Laura Kelly’s Princess Party Printables, we had a little party of our own. My kids had fun doing the word games and mazes.
My son even got in on the fun — he picked the “Save the Princess” printable, because it had a knight on it. He also beat me in a race to finish the maze. Hmph.
These would make great party favors, with a few crayons, all wrapped up with a cute bow (I like fun, creative party favors rather than those little junky toys everyone plays with once and then leaves broken around the house).
And you don’t have to limit these to just parties. I’d print them out and bring them along on road trips with a bunch of fun pencils or markers (crayons melt in the car!) to keep the kids busy.
If you’re interested, you can find the printables in Laura Kelly’s etsy shop, along with a bunch of other cool, creative projects!
