5 Fun Ways To Use Kids Birthday Party Stickers This Summer

Great Ideas for using Kids Party Stickers

Kids love stickers.  That's a fact.  Personalized stickers only add to the enjoyment.  So, if you're planning a birthday party for your favorite boy or girl, you're going to want to have plenty of stickers on hand.  Here's 5 fun ways that you can use them at your party this summer. 

1.  Use stickers to play games at the party.  There are lots of fun games you can play at the party using stickers.  One such game would require each child to receive a set number of stickers when they arrive at the party.  One forbidden code word like "Birthday" or something even harder to not say like "cool" or "wow"  is given to everyone when they receive their set of stickers.  Anyone who hears someone else say the code word gets to put a sticker on them.  The game continues on until someone has no more stickers and they are declared the winner.

You can even create teams for other types of games with stickers.  One group wears one color or type of matching stickers while the other group wears a different one.


 2.  Use them to decorate the dessert.  You can use two stickers with a toothpick stuck in the middle as a fun, easy and inexpensive way to personalize and decorate cake, cupcakes, ice cream or anything else you're serving.

To save money you can even get away with using one sticker with a same-sized color coordinated piece of paper stuck on the back of the sticker with the toothpick in between.

3.  Decorate the dessert table.  Another great food-based idea is to stick them to the wrappers of lollypops to be used to decorate your dessert table.  We did this for my granddaughter's christening last summer and everyone loved them. 

This works well if you choose pops that are fairly close in size to the stickers you purchase.  We used 2 inch round Pink Swirl Pops with round stickers and included her name and the date of the party on them.  Everyone commented on how cute they were. 

We used some of them to stick out on top of our candy jars and just laid others randomly on the table with great effect.

4.  Use them to personalize Thank You favors.  Use personalized or photo Thank You stickers on your party favors to make them so much more personal and definitely more cute.  We love the one featured at the top of this post.

You'll need a photo of the birthday child already available on your computer so that you can easily upload it onto the sticker template.

5.  Stickers can even BE the party favor if you choose wisely.  Give each child a set of stickers personalized with their own names or just choose something that matches your party theme like these adorable Beach Ball stickers for a pool party.

At Zazzle, there's all kinds of templates and party themes to choose from so you're sure to find the perfect ones to match your colors, theme or just your child's imagination.

Use Personalized Chubby Business Cards as Kids Valentines, Invitations and more!

I just found a post at the Zazzle blog that teaches how to use chubby business cards  as personalized DIY (kind of) Kids Valentine Cards. 

Of course you can use regular sized business cards but chubby business cards are a bit larger than standard sized cards.  They measure a nice 3.5" x 2.5" and are sold 100 to a pack. 

What a super duper great idea!  Don't you think?  It's one of those, I really wish I had thought of that myself moments. I mean, how sweet to put a photo of your child on their very own Valentines? You know their friends will be super jealous of their special cards and each card becomes a keepsake of Valentine's Day this year.

 Here's the link to the original post at Zazzle that shows exactly how easy this is to do: DIY Business Cards As Kids Valentine’s Day Cards

As soon as I saw it, I realized that these types of cards could come in handy for so many other occasions as well such as hand-out-only birthday party invitations, cards for other occasions, end of school forget-me-nots, etc., etc., ETC.

Here's the link to the custom business card template  shown above.  You'll need to upload a photo of your child, or children, from your computer and all of the text can be easily customized and changed to say whatever you like.

 Until next time,

Planning an Academy Awards Party?

This year, the Academy Awards will take place on March 2, 2014.  Will you be inviting friends and family over to watch the festivities with you?

If you enjoy watching alone, just think how much fun it will be to watch it with a group of your favorite people.

They've already announced the nominees but there's still plenty of time to get your party together, and go see all the nominated movies you might have missed like I plan to do.

The party planning for this is super easy.  You'll only really need some star-studded appetizers, maybe a pizza or two and a bottle of wine, or you can make it a strictly coffee and cake kind of evening.

Most of all you'll want to have on hand  some way of keeping track of everyone's choices for the winners.  That's what will make the most fun.  Simple notepads and pens or pencils work fine for this.

I've featured a fun personalized Annual Movie Awards Party Invite here to help you gather the gang together for the evening.

I found a fun board at Pinterest where they've shared lots of great ideas for a Hollywood/Academy Awards Party.

Here's hoping your favorite movie wins.
Until next time,

At Zazzle, Bloom County lives again through cards, custom postage, postcards and other fun gift items.

Stunning Watercolor Postcard Art

I love collecting post cards, old and new.

I also really love watercolor art so when I found the artist, BIGSTOCK, at Zazzle, I was thrilled beyond words.

For me, I enjoy the softness and tranquility of watercolors.  There's a sense of peacefulness and quiet about them that relaxes me and makes me feel happy.  That's why I enjoy placing them in all of the different rooms of my home.

If you're into watercolor designs of any type, one visit to the BIGSTOCK shop will have you in heaven.  Many of their beautiful art work is also available on other custom products but for me, it's the postcards that I love best.

The reason being is that I can afford to buy as many as I like in all of the styles and colors to match my every room and my every mood.  After purchasing, I frame them and display mini masterpieces all over my home.

It's fun to change them out with the seasons too.

They feature a huge selection of many different artistic styles including; Florals, Geometric, Abstract, Ombre, Animals and Tonal, to name but a few.  Here's a small sample of what you'll find there.

Colorful Rooster. Calligraphy and watercolor. Postcards Beautiful woman with a fan. postcard
