Everything you Need for a Totally Awesome Party

So to get started, I did what all parents do nowadays. I headed over to Pinterest. And wow, there are some amazing ideas and inspiration there. Have a think about keeping it easy though. Pinterest is great but sometimes the ideas are clearly for people with A LOT of time on their hands.

For pudding? Pizza watermelon, apples and some slimy jellies. I simply made green jelly and popped a bug sweet on top.

For turtle themed drinks, I covered some Robinson’s Fruit Shoots with coloured paper and eyes. I downloaded the turtle CHLORINAR font here and simply made my own printable tags and signs too. It helps to invest in a good colour printer for this type of stuff.

I also grabbed some limeade to pop in a dispenser. The dispenser leaked though, and to be honest the limeade was vile.

They are so much fun when the weather is warm. Grab some plastic tools and let the kids enjoy! Each egg included a toy dinosaur for the kids to keep.

You really don’t need to spend much to have a fab time. You can pick up lots of bits on eBay and create your own printable labels and signs. The apples and fruit shoots look great and didn’t take me long at all.

Another thing that worked really well was tattoos! We all had a lot of fun!
