Eye Candy

What do you do when your kids outgrow Legos? Hand them chewing gum—and a lot of it! Apparently Jeremy Laffon would rather build with his gum, than chew it (or maybe he can build and chew gum at the same time!) Regardless, his creations are mouth watering, and fun to look at!

Marshmallow Molecules

Here’s a fun way to learn about science and molecules or to simply have fun building with unusual yet edible materials! All you need is some spaghetti (pre-cooked of course!) and a bag of small and/or large marshmallows. Have fun seeing what designs you come up. How high can you go?

Great Plates for the Thanksgiving Kiddie Table

With Thanksgiving just a little over a week away, you may have food on the brain. If you’re a parent, you’re probably wondering 1) how you’re going to get your kid to eat the veggies and 2) how you’re going to convince him to sit at the table for any respectable amount of time? The solution to both dilemmas comes from Boguslaw Sliwinski, who not only thinks it’s ok to play with your food; he downright encourages it. Check out his creative line of ceramics and imagine a few placed at your Thanksgiving kiddie table!

Kid Cake!

The next time you’re sweating over cake decorating for your kids, remember this awesome strategy: Why not let the birthday boy or girl do it? That was the brilliant thinking behind one mom’s fantastic doodle cake. What might be even better than eating your own cake? For some creative kids, it might just be decorating it!

You can find the AmeriColor Food Colour Markers here and more on Rosie’s fabulous cake on her Sweetapolita blog.

Sound the Alarm: A Fire Engine Birthday Party

from Jamie

A couple of weeks ago my family and I had the pleasure of attending Fletcher’s 3rd birthday celebration. His parents, Josh and Jackie, are known for throwing creative bashes, and this was no exception!

How could you not get fired up over an invitation like this? I’m in awe of the three-dimensional quality.

Could it be?

Yep, a real fire engine! Lucky for us big kids, adults were invited too!

Time to move this party inside to the dining room table, where Jackie always works her magic.

Ok, so this is the second time in one hour that I’m blown away by the appearance of a fire engine!

Love the bright colors and detailed precision in these cookies, by the Etsy Shop, Rollin in Dough.

Black licorice fire hoses on paper flame cutouts. Sometimes the simplest things are the most graphic!

Chocolate molds of… you guessed it.

Tissue paper flaming bouquets topped off with marshmallow match sticks

Fiery popcorn balls

And last but not least, a fire engine veggie tray: AWESOME! Not only was this the talk of the adults, it actually succeeded in getting people to eat veggies, and at a kids’ birthday party, of all places!
