My 4 Favorite Parties of the Week including an owl 1st birthday party, a Lego party, a Laloopsy party, and an airplane party! | CatchMyParty.com

Whoa, it's hot here. I'm sweating as I sit at my desk writing this, wishing we had air conditioning. Luckily we don't get this kind of heat often, but when we do...whoa.

Sharing awesome parties always puts me in a better mood, so my focus this week is creative kids birthday parties, including two first birthdays.

Why I Think This Is The Best Craft To Keep Your Kids Busy This Summer

Hawaiian Paper Lei Kids Craft | CatchMyParty.com

Now that we're getting into late summer, your kids have probably watched a fair amount of Netflix. My daughter's actually getting bored of it... what?! :)

So I wanted to bring you this Hawaiian paper lei kid craft to keep your kids engrossed long enough for you to do the laundry and maybe even catch your own favorite Netflix show. What makes this my favorite craft is that it's entertaining for older kids (especially if they're doing the paper punching), simple for the youngsters, there's no big mess to clean up at the end, the supplies are inexpensive, and everyone gets something pretty to wear when done. Told you it was a good one!
