6 Ways to Pretend Play Birthday All Year Round

If your kids are like mine, their birthday is their favorite day of the year. In fact, my kids make elaborate plans for crafts, parties, and gifts months and months before the actual birthday date. All of which are subject to change at any moment.

Birthdays are the best.

So, I just go with it. We pretend play birthday all the time.

We sing Happy Birthday in the car to them, to me, to all our relatives, to our pets, to our toys.

We play birthday party, too.

And do you know what? It’s great to play birthday because while you’re playing, you’re sneaking in lots of learning opportunities.

Here are some ideas for your next pretend play birthday bash.

One of our family’s favorite fall activities are the different Fall Festivals in our community. A chance to celebrate the season, enjoy the cooler weather, and have tons of fun, a Fall Festival is also the perfect excuse to have some friends over!

You can easily host your own Fall Festival right in your own backyard just for your children, or for a group of children. Fall Festivals can include games, prizes, sweet treats, preschoolers, school-age children, take place during the day, or in the evening. You can create your own Fall Festival to suit your needs or to fit a certain theme. The possibilities are endless! Here are a few things to think about when throwing your own Fall Festival.

Where we live it gets super cold and snowy. My girls and I love to bundle up and build snowmen, toss a few snowballs, go sledding, and even make a snow angel or two.  But when it’s time to come in, we roll out the award winning Hopscotch Rug!

No set up is required, just unroll the rug and start playing right away!

This Treat Shop Takes the Cake!

The ALEX Tasty Treat Shop is perfect for young and aspiring bakers! It folds up flat, but, when you open it up, it is a double-sided bakeshop! One side is the bakery, covered in bright graphics of pots and pans, mixers and ovens, while the other side is the storefront, decorated with yummy looking cakes, pies, cookies and treats! There are lots of colorful paper board ingredients and baked goodies included. You also get a plastic measuring cup and spoons, a mixing bowl and a wire whisk.

Today’s Lesson: Teaching is Lots of Fun!

October 5, 2011 at 03:00 | Posted in Family Time, Let's Play, Play@Home Mom, Reviews | 1 Comment

It is already more than a month into the school year and we are in full-on school mode in our family. We get up, eat breakfast, pack lunch, get dressed and are off to school, but not necessarily in that order! I pick up Lori when school lets out and hear all about her exciting day, but school is still on her mind. At home, she pretends to be the teacher and tells her dolls (and little sister) to sit down for story time. She loves it and that is why I knew she would love Let’s Pretend School from ALEX.
