Birthday kid gets a ballon avalanche when he/she opens the door in the AM. Pinned this before but this one uses crepe paper to hold the balloons instead of a sheet of plastic, which is way better! Cuz then they get to rip through the paper!
DIY summer fun for toddlers & kids: "Workin' at the Car Wash" (seen in Parenting Magazine) - Hang strips of solid-color vinyl tablecloths and colorful sponges from the top of inexpensive PVC piping (at Home Depot). Have the kids line up on scooters, trikes, and in wagons. Direct sprinklers to squirt riders as they roll by. I wanna ride through this!
