Kids pyjama parties MADC'S style September 16 2013, 0 Comments

Our mum was a Kindergarten teacher with a hugely creative mind and soul. Like most lucky kids, Christie and I have very fond and real memories of the fantastic parties that our mum used to create for us and her friends! We have shared some of these amazing party fun ideas with our kids and friends and added a few of our own along the way.

Lolly Flowers (pictured) are one of the party ideas that we have inherited from our mum. These are a great alternative to the more usual lolly bag or goodie bag that most kids take home from a party. They are filled with lollies in the middle but obviously they are much more appealing as a bunch of flowers! You can use them as a centre-piece of a party table as they look fabulous as a bunch of flowers. Then simply let the kids 'pick a flower' on their way home. The kids just rip or tear the cellophane or middle of the flower and hold the stalk (a crepe paper covered chopstick) while they 'pick' and enjoy the contents of the flower.

We have added and found many other cool and creative party ideas and added them to a few boards on our Pinterest page. To check them out click here or here.

If you would like to find out how to make these lolly flowers let us know by posting a comment here. If we get enough interest we might add some instructions onto our pinterest board(s). Oh, and by the way, they can be filled with anything not just lollies, popcorn is another great filling to use.
