My Favorite! The Backyardigans Party Tips!

I have to admit it, I love The Backyardigans. I really really do. Their messages are simple and not tarnished with adult humor, and make for awesomely fun parties! As the theme of the show is all about using your imagination, you really can’t go wrong! We celebrated Backyardigan style 2 years ago, for my daughters 5th birthday party. Total success! Tons o’ fun!

We purchased one CD for some background music, but it totally ended up being the highlight of the party. As the kids started singing the songs, (“Ridin’ the Range!”) the stereo just got cranked up louder and louder. Even kids who had never watched the Backyardigans learned the tunes and sang along. Even a few dads joined in the fun! In addition, we planned a mini-scavenger hunt. We didn’t need to put up a lot of decorations, thank goodness! The beautiful cake (thank you was a stunning centerpiece! But,more than anything, the kids had a total blast.

You may need a recipe for Hollandaise Sauce.  I think it goes great with my favorite Easter brunch menu:  Eggs Benedict, fresh steamed asparagus, and a Mimosa!

Are you planning an Easter Egg Hunt?  When my son was very small, I always hid green grapes in the colorful hollow plastic eggs.  I just thought it wasn’t good for a toddler to eat all that candy.  Two year olds on a sugar binge can really ruin the day.  Besides, he loved green grapes so I don’t think he ever held it against me.  He’s 18 now.  I should ask him sometime.

All the other kids knew that the purple plastic eggs were for him – the Easter Bunny said so!!  I did ask him if he remembered that his eggs had grapes.  He says he doesn’t recall.  I’m safe!

The page above mentions all kinds of food, games and decorations.  But most of all, it gives tips on how to plan the party on the cheaper side of life.  Ahhh..  What a breath of fresh air!  And it says that gumbo is perfect to serve.  Does it get any better!  Gumbo and Disney all mixed up into one party?  Wonder if the kids will let me make a crawfish etouffee instead.  Nahh… Save that one for the adults!
