More Birthday Party Preparations

Yesterday we baked some thumbprint cookies which we will call Little Jack Horner Thumbprints. I also started making the birthday hats. I decided our Jack and Jill ones were a bit impractical to make and wear, so I used some of the used nursery rhyme books I bought for decorations and cut out the pages. Each page is a hat. I formed a cone with it and used some glue stick. Then I punched a hole on each side. I used elastic cord with a bead on each end to keep it.
I used two different size books so some are for adults and some are for kids. I think they came out pretty well.

I also used some smaller used books to make one of the book page wreaths I saw on line.
Now I just need to find a place to hang it.

Last night I also made some Jello play dough which I have to say is much more work than the other kinds. In fact I made the traditional homemade play dough afterwards and separated it into two colors and scents. This will be on the table for the children to play baker's man with a reference to pat-a-cake.

Today I will be making the cake. Tonight setting up the house and tomorrow cooking like crazy and then enjoying. I'm thankful to my parents for coming to help me with all the prep work and especially my mom who is helping with everything!

Hope you have a great day. Come back tonight or tomorrow for our Sharing Saturday. This will be the last one I will be doing solo. New changes to come in the new year!!


  1. Good luck for your preparations and the party! Sounds like it will be lots of fun x

  2. I love your wreath!! I saw those as well and wanted to make them for Christmas, but to hang it as decoration for a b-day party...genius!! Hope the b-day party goes well :) Can't wait to see more pics.
