Spring Party

I would not be the first to say that winter has overstayed its welcome this year. Everyone in our house is itching to get outside including Bently, our hyper one year old dog. The problem? Highs in the teens and lows in the negatives. Yes, still at the end of March we are freezing up here in North country. And then a thought occurred to me: maybe if I have a spring/Easter party with some friends mother nature will change her mind and send us spring.

This is the picture to our backyard. Nice, right? HUGE drift!

The Plan:
We have some really good friends who have kids around our kids' age. They love playing together but because we are all so busy and they live about 40 minutes away, we don't get to see them too often. We decided to get together and do a few fun activities with our kids.

The Activities:
We each decided to pick an activity or two for the kids. I will add links and pictures after we party it up.

Door Hangers

Foam stickers and fun!

The Food:
I wanted something simple and fun for the kids. After all, today is all about the kids, and I wanted them be a part of as much as they could be.

Flower Sandwiches
More details to come but for now you can know that it involves plastic cups, flattened bread, muffin tins, meat, and veggies.

Spring Butterflies
As a side to our flower sandwiches we will be eating butterflies--Apple butterflies!
