NaBloPoMo Day 15: The Things We Do for Love

Little One turned 3 on 11/11/11. Because I'm one crazy mother, I did this...
 I used cookie cutters to cut fruit into shapes of hearts, stars and flowers.
 Because this was a party for 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 year olds, I had two crafts tables set up. One for "make your own party hat/visor" and another for "decorate your own loot bag".

I love the party hat idea. I "borrowed" it from the Mount Sinai Hospital NICU Graduates/Preemie Picnic we attended last June. I purchased foam visors (I think they come 6 in a pack) and foam letters, numbers, and shapes. The letters, numbers and shapes have a sticky backing, so the  kids just had to peel the paper off the back and stick them onto the visor. They added their names and a few personal touches. Amazing what little things can make kids really happy!

 I also picked up some colourful paper bags and a bunch of stickers. Again, they personalized their bags and when they were done, I collected them and filled them with fun stuff.
 Yes, I even cut the cheese into shapes with the cookie cutters.

 My mother made Filipino noodles (pancit). It's a tradition in our family to have noodles for birthdays and special occasions. My Mom always says, "We have to have noodles on our birthday for long life!"
